in HITM consists of four levels:
Full members are comprised of national healthcare IT management associations, who can nominate one representative to the HITM Annual General Assembly. This representative will have the power to speak and vote on HITM priorities and organisational objectives, fundamental advocacy efforts, election of the Executive Members and the Board, and much more.
Associate members are representatives from healthcare organisations, who have the opportunity to speak, but not vote, at the HITM Annual General Assembly. Associate members will also have the privilege of electing one member to represent them in the Executive Members group.
Individual members are directly involved with healthcare IT management, with the opportunity to elect one member with the power to speak, and vote, at the HITM Annual General Assembly. Individual members will also have the privilege of electing one member to represent them in the Executive Members group.
Corporate members are representatives from corporations engaged in supplying products and services to the healthcare IT sector. While corporate members may attend the Annual General Assembly, they do not have the power to speak or vote. However, corporate members may elect one member from amongst the Diamond Founding Supporters to represent them in the Executive Members group.
