“The NCHICA annual conference provides a great venue for networking and generating new business. Unlike national mega-conferences, NCHICA is a tight knit group of heatlhcare IT professionals who share a common passion for privacy, IT security and systems innovation. The presentations are solution-focused and demonstrate methods and practices which can be implemented immediately. The conference is a great value for the contacts and ideas I return to the office with. I look forward to this event each year!”
