Workgroup Community

Everyday, WEDI members volunteer their time and talent to WEDI workgroups to provide thoughtful leadership and common-sense approaches that enhance the exchange of clinical and administrative healthcare information. They collect input, exchange ideas, and make recommendations that inspire impactful and far-reaching change in our industry.

Joining a workgroup is easy

After you've logged into the WEDI Member Center, in "My Info" select the workgroups that you want to participate in and then click save. Workgroup information will also be posted in the Forum, so all our members can see the great work being done. Watch this video for more information.

Violations of this policy should be brought to the attention of the WEDI President & CEO, other WEDI staff, or WEDI Officers (Chair, Chair-Elect, or Past Chair).

Abuse of the Code of Conduct may result in the temporary or permanent expulsion of an individual’s participation with WEDI and/or the revocation of WEDI membership as a result of violation of the Membership Code of Conduct; nonconformity with the Bylaws or Policy Manual; or engages in other actions which the Board of Directors determines to be injurious to the good name or good will of WEDI.

No such suspension or expulsion shall be effected without affording a reasonable opportunity for the member or individual to consider the charges and be heard in his or her own defense before the designated hearing committee, as delegated by the Board of Directors, which may choose to engage the full Board of Directors in any decision to suspend or expel an individual or member from WEDI.
