My Meetings

This December, join healthcare IT professionals from across the country as they convene near our nation's capital to address the "nuts and bolts" of the industry.

A multi-stakeholder audience featuring providers, payer, solutions experts and more will spend 2 and a half days seeking solutions for some of the industry's most pressing concerns.

2 primary tracks will be featured at the conference- Data Exchange and Privacy, Security & Cybersecurity.

Learn about Block Chain; what is it? who is it used now and why will it matter in healthcare in less than 10 years?

A review of NCVHS initiatives and look forward at 2018 with Alix Goss of NCVHS

Learn more about the WEDI workgroups and the impressive work they do during the Monday open workgroup working sessions.





The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) is the leading authority on the use of Health IT to improve healthcare information exchange in order to enhance the quality of care, improve efficiency and to reduce costs of the American healthcare system. Formed in 1991 by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), WEDI was named in the 1996 HIPAA legislation as an advisor to HHS and continues to fulfill that role today.

Serving as a private and public industry solution to critical healthcare problems, WEDI is a coalition comprised of a cross-section of the healthcare industry: doctors, hospitals, health plans, laboratories, pharmacies, clearinghouses, dentists, vendors, government regulators and other industry stakeholders.
