HITM - European Association of Healthcare IT Managers

The Representative Authority
Since 2006 theEuropean Association of Healthcare IT Managers (HITM) is established as the pan-European umbrella organisation of relevant national health managers and healh-IT associations. HITM is committed to increase the professional authority and responsibility of CIOs and healthcare IT managers and to represent them to international institutions and associations.

It is commonly agreed that It is of fundamental importance to unify the basic strengths of healthcare IT professionals at European and international levels. Therefore some of HITM’s goals are:

  • To establish common healthcare IT management standards, policies and strategies at EU and international levels;
  • To increase the visibility of the importance and role of IT management in healthcare facilities;
  • To educate key policy makers, industry players and the general public of the benefits of IT healthcare management and
  • To promote cross-collaboration within healthcare management sectors.

Such an important attempt can only be successful with the wide cooperation of all different stakeholder communities. Therefore HITM is open to all different kinds of members organisations, as long as they agree to support HITMs goals.
