Events Overview

Annual Conference

This invitation-only event fosters interaction among executive peers and other industry leaders with informal and open dialogue for collaboration for C-Suite executives, e.g., CEOs, CMOs, CIOs, CMIOs, CISOs, CNIOs, Data/Analytics Officers, etc. Each conference generates presentations and/or audio recordings of each session.


Member-generated, no-holds-barred, one-hour conference calls enabling any executive to convene a discussion of peers around any topic, challenge or question. These regularly scheduled or extemporaneous calls are not recorded or transcribed. What happens in a dialogue stays in a dialogue.

Dialogues are currently held among CIOs, CISOs, CMIOs and CNIOs.


At our SI Annual Conference gathering of Member C-Suite executives we convene key roles for intimate and focused conversation on current issues and challenges. In the context of SI’s signature intimacy, this is a unique opportunity to hear from and converse with healthcare’s thought leaders and influencers.

Site Visits

Instructive and inspiring onsite visits to SI Member organizations or innovative industry sites. Tours, talks and big takeaways. Attendance varies by topic and site but is intentionally multi-disciplinary to help accelerate adoption of leading edge programs and ideas.


Intimate, typically title-specific gatherings of executives consisting of an introductory afternoon discussion, reception and dinner followed by a morning-after deep discussion and wrap-up of key insights. Each Summit produces a professionally-written white paper on the discussion and its conclusions, published only after review by every participant.

"The conference affirmed that our direction and planning is in alignment with where the health industry is heading. While we may be ahead in some areas, we are slower in others. We are now better prepared to focus our efforts on what matters."

The forum is intimate and collaborative, with some incredible speakers who bring a strategic view of healthcare IT. Most importantly, the relationships I’ve developed continue throughout the year.
