AEHIS members are encouraged to become engaged in the organization. One valuable way members can contribute to AEHIS is by getting involved with a committee.

Professional Development Committee

Develop strategies for CISO professional growth; determine feasibility/criteria for an AEHIS-sponsored certification.
Committee Chairs: Deb Stevens, Tufts Health Plan and Darrell Keeling, Parkview Health

Collaborative Relationships

Determine appropriate AEHIS partnerships–within and outside healthcare space; leverage these collaborative opportunities to mesh with Education/Professional Development/Public Policy efforts.
Committee Chair: Sean Murphy, Premera Blue Cross
