EHI Live is a golden opportunity to update knowledge, get answers to questions, meet the experts and think about the future.

The exhibition hosts the annual HANDI Health Apps conference which comes with its own specialist app zone, a feature dedicated to use of open source technology, the co-location of the CCIO Leaders Network annual conference as well an exhibition that already features more exhibitors than last year.

EHI will host the second Health CIO Network Annual Conference, bringing together CIOs from inside and outside the NHS.

Annual conference where the eHealth community meets…

EHI Live 2014 is more than a conference, more than an exhibition. For anyone involved in the use of information in healthcare it’s a golden opportunity to update knowledge, get answers to questions, meet the experts and think about the future.  In its seventh year, EHI Live attracts visitors and delegates from around the UK and beyond who are keen to listen to industry figures and investigate new technologies. The exhibition gives visitors the chance to see the best that NHS IT suppliers have to offer the health service, as it gets to grips with the need to save money while improving patient access and quality.

The conference serves up a stimulating programme of sessions across three streams – Leadership, Best practice and Innovation – featuring leading thinkers, healthcare practitioners, policy makers, technologists and futurologists.  It includes the Health CCIO Leaders Network Annual Conference which addresses the critical role of the CIO as leader and examines how we build a new generation of digital leaders in healthcare.

Health Informatics Forum

is a social networking website for health informatics professionals and students from around the world.

Administered by Dr Chris Paton – a Clinical Research Fellow (Medical Doctor) at Oxford University, the site has over 7,000 registered members and provides access to Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) materials that use content developed through a $10 million grant from the Office of the National Coordinator in the US.

There’s a Forum and Chat for members, a Blog, Links, etc and it has a jobs board with a number of advertised US-based roles which will benefit our wider audience as it starts to show more international postings.

We find the resource directory is useful as a source of links on a variety of topics (journals, books, institutions, etc) and you’ll find us (health-informatics.co) on the education links page under “international” programs.
