Dear WEDI Members,
What a pleasure it was to host so many of you at our National Conference in Arlington this month! I enjoy every opportunity to talk with each of you about the challenges around realizing the true efficiencies and innovations that can be found in health IT, and how certain policies and initiatives are impacting your organizations. Together with all stakeholders at the table, we can spark change and work to build a better system. I hope to see all of our members and more new faces at the Spring Conference in San Diego, California. Mark your calendars now to join us May 20-23, as our staff and education committee are already hard at work bringing in the most impactful and influential speakers of our industry.
We have no shortage of important activities underway by our organization and Workgroups and have outlined a number of those in this newsletter. Should you have any questions or be looking for ways in which you can be involved, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always happy to have more active members join our Workgroups and Subworkgroups to share their expertise and contribute to the furthering of our mission. And we greatly welcome and encourage the input of our membership, as you’ll see in the two current surveys underway. Your guiding suggestions help drive our organization and the topics in which we focus. We thank you all for your time in taking the surveys.
WEDI President & CEO
