About PAeHI

The Pennsylvania eHealth Initiative (PAeHI) was created in 2005 as a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers representing private and public entities that bring Pennsylvania's various healthcare, business, and technology industries together to pursue a common mission -— to improve patient care through the effective and efficient use of health information technology.


Effective July 1, 2014, PAeHI returned to operation as a largely volunteer organization governed by a smaller five-person Latent Board of Directors representing The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania eHealth Partnership Authority, Quality Insights of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Medical Society and a director-at-large. PAeHI's Board of Directors acted to temporarily scale back PAeHI activities in order to maximize member/stakeholder efforts towards ensuring the success of the Pennsylvania eHealth Partnership Authority (Authority). PAeHI encourages existing and prospective members/stakeholders to explore opportunities to engage in the success of the Authority by visiting its website at paehealth.org.
