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. It’s mission statement: “In every part of healthcare, information technology is changing the way managers and clinical staff work, the way services are delivered and how health consumers think and behave.” The central purpose of EHI is to explain these changes to business, professional and consumer audiences, and help healthcare organisations to realise the full potential of electronic communications.
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.
