• The Premier Event for Healthcare CIOs. The Forum provides valuable education programming, tailored specifically to meet the needs of CIOs and other healthcare IT executives, as well as face-to-face time with colleagues to collaborate, exchange best practices, address professional development needs and strengthen partnerships with industry associations, government agencies and vendor service firms who share a professional interest in improving the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of healthcare.

    CHIME16 represents our 25th Fall CIO Forum, and in recognition of this momentous occasion, we’re pulling out all the stops! This year’s event combines the best speakers and healthcare IT educators in the nation with unparalleled opportunities for CIOs and Foundation partners to network with their peers and collectively share solutions, solve problems and address challenges. In honor of the 25th Fall CIO Forum, we are planning some extra-special guests, activities and events. Mark your calendar to join us in sunny Phoenix to network, learn, relax and celebrate 25 years of CHIME’s Fall CIO Forum.
