World Summit 2017

  • Discussion about region and location (Decision required!!!)
  • HIMSS Asia Pacific offered us to do it in conjunction with the HIMSS AsiaPac conference in Singapore.
  • Details known so far
  • HIMSS AsiaPac and HIMSS International seem to be very interested to go for this event
  • They offer full support in organizing
  • They check offering the same model like in Amsterdam for taking financial risk
  • We already said, that this is mandatory for us, otherwise to risky
  • They offer to help finding participants
  • They offer to help finding speakers and panelists
  • HIMSS is aware about the problems of holding this event in that region and offers full support to govern that
  • HIMSS has worked hard on building up relationships to Asian governments and it's now quite mature
  • This could be leveraged for the summit
  • Risks:
  • Participation of EU and US might be low
  • Participation might be low at all (financial risk for HIMSS, but image risk for IHE)
  • HIMSS AsiaPac has already a high number of participants
  • Speakers and Panelists perhaps harder to find. Needs Asian program planning team.
  • Asian IHE orgs must be activated, plus eventually foreign persons out of HIMSS connections
  • Program style must be changed perhaps and include more "IHE education" and less panels
  • Asian IHE orgs are still quite distinct, can we really activate them sufficiently?
  • Benefits:
  • Prominent IHE event in that region for the first time
  • Asia region needs IHE "energy" -> this is a good opportunity, region is prepared, time is right now!
  • Singapore is a "neutral" point in Asia, where everyone can go
  • Michio said that Japanese like to go to Singapore
  • Decisions
  • An email will be drafted for inviting IHE Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan to the program planning committee
  • Drafted by Jürgen, Mike, Charles and Chris, sent out by GDC co-chairs with IHE Intl. Co-Chairs in CC
  • Next steps decided after reaction of those Deployment Committees
  • HIMSS AsiaPac will be informed about this step (Jürgen)
  • It's critical for the success of the event to have our IHE orgs on board

Any other business

  • None
