    Leadership from the Edge *NEW FOR CHIME17*

    CHIME will be introducing a new set of sessions on Friday morning called Leadership from the Edge. These sessions will focus on how HIT leaders are looking into the future to determine how their leadership is changing to meet the needs of a very different healthcare delivery environment. CHIME will be seeking presentations from our HIT leadership community that point the way toward this new path, exploring how leaders can prepare for the future direction of healthcare, create a strategic vision and develop the leadership needed to get there.
