THE 2016 INTERNATIONAL MUSE CONFERENCE IS THE PREMIER SOURCE FOR NETWORKING, EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR MEDITECH USERS. 
 
This conference creates a space for attendees to generate and be exposed to ideas and innovative solutions. The familial environment encourages the development of executable actions that you can implement when you return to your organization by rejuvenating your creativity and motivation.

 
 

You'll find education focused on today’s most pressing MEDITECH topics, the newest products and services in the exhibit hall and unparalleled networking opportunities around every turn. Imagine a room filled with your peers and experts in your field just waiting to speak with you and share their stories. Or perhaps you have discovered a break-through solution and you’d like to pass along your information to help others.

MUSE strives to offer education and networking that attendees cannot access anywhere else, including current hot topics presented by your peers - who have first-hand experience. Walk away with strategies, new connections, and innovative ideas to move your organization forward. Each year, the International MUSE Conference improves on its overall content, and 2016 is no exception!

USE OF MEMBERSHIP OR ATTENDEE LISTS
MUSE Commercial Members have access to MUSE membership lists and attendee lists for MUSE events. Commercial Members may use these lists for direct marketing purposes, but must follow these guidelines:

MUSE membership and attendee lists are available for communications that are relevant to registrants for the particular MUSE event and MUSE members in general. If asked, Commercial Members must be able to clearly identify the value of the communication, from the recipient’s perspective, to the MUSE Board of Directors. The assessed value of the communications is at the sole discretion of MUSE.

MUSE membership and attendee lists include a wide range of MEDITECH hospital users. It is the responsibility of the Commercial Member to use all available information to sort and distill their final list to the target market prior to launching the marketing. Examples of sorting categories include, but are not limited to:

  Job description of the recipient 
 
Type of MEDITECH products being used
  Size of hospital
 
 Geographic location

Although there are no specific maximum number of marketing campaigns dictated by MUSE, it is expected that a Commercial Member does not send out emails so frequently that being on the MUSE mailing list becomes undesirable to its members. If a specific company is abusing this flexibility or has shown themselves unable or unwilling to keep marketing within what MUSE considers reasonable, MUSE retains the right to revoke a Commercial Member’s right to use these lists for direct marketing purposes.

MUSE membership or attendee lists cannot be given, traded, shared or sold to another company or party.

Under no circumstances can the MUSE membership or attendee lists be used to promote a non-MUSE event, webcast, or publication. User Group meetings that are taking place during the same timelines as a MUSE event must be marketed using the organizing group’s own marketing lists.

MUSE membership or attendee lists may not be used as a recruitment tool. Emails, newsletters, or cold calls that include information regarding employment opportunities outside of the member’s hospital are prohibited. Commercial Members wanting to reach MUSE Members who are seeking employment can access the Career Center on the MUSE website.

The content of the communications sent must in no way be detrimental or damaging to any the MUSE membership, MEDITECH, the MUSE organization, or those employees and volunteers of MUSE.

Failure to abide by these rules can result in a fine of up to 5 Priority Points, and/or a financial penalty of up to $1,500.00, and/or suspension or termination of membership.

Badges will be picked up onsite at the Registration Desk.
