Dear MEDITECH EU Facility Member,

Please find details of the forthcoming MEDITECH Users Network (MUN EU) 2017 event.

The conference provides a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the MEDITECH solution directly
through Centennial MIT //MEDITECH representatives and also experience the software/hardware
offerings from other vendors which further enhance the use of your MEDITECH system (vendor booths in
the exhibition area and vendor presentations included in the agenda).

This year MUN is also thrilled to introduce a new Keynote Speaker to the conference. We are delighted to
welcome Helen Waters, Meditechs Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing for her address on the
morning of day 1.

You will also be able to hear about implementations/solutions at other MEDITECH EU sites, directly from
key project staff, and also through end users. One of the greatest benefits of attending the conference
is the excellent opportunity to network with other MEDITECH EU sites & your peers, with the ability to
share experiences and ideas.

In addition to the formal agenda, there will also be an opportunity to meet vendors and socialise at the Wine
and Canap Event which will take place at 3:45pm on Wednesday 27th September 2017.

It is intended that the agenda for both days will be finalised and distributed before the end August 2017.
