EHealth Insider is the leading source of news, comment and analysis about healthcare IT in the UK. It runs an industry-leading portal, publishes newsletters and special reports, brings the e-health community together at EHI Live in Birmingham, and celebrates its successes at the annual EHI Awards in association with CGI.
EHI is completely independent and owned by its founders, Linda Davidson and Jon Hoeksma. It was set up as a newsletter in 2001 and has grown, as a business, to include a research arm - EHI Intelligence - and the CCIO Leaders Network to promote clinical involvement in IT and information projects.
EHI Intelligence, launched at EHI Live in 2010, provides in-depth research profiling NHS acute and mental health trusts across the UK to show their installed systems; allowing subscribers to see the market share of providers and the trusts that will be looking for new installations in the near future.
June 2011 saw the launch of the EHI CCIO campaign calling for chief clinical information officers to be appointed in all NHS provider organisations. The CCIO Leaders Network was born out of this successful campaign and supports current and future CCIOs as well as running a successful events programme with key campaign partners and supporters. The sister Health CIO Network was launched in November 2013 to serve as a professional network for chief information officers across the health service in England.
EHI added to its news coverage with the dedicated commissioning and imaging informatics news streams. EHI has a wide audience of readers with an interest in healthcare IT, including senior managers within trusts and commissioning organisations, NHS IT directors and their staff, people working for UK healthcare IT suppliers, hospital clinicians, GPs, academics, and interested patients.
