About OHTA

OHTA membership includes various organizational levels of specialists who deal with voice, video, wireless, and data services required to provide their respective hospitals with leading edge telecommunications services.


OHTA welcomes vendor members, who partner with hospital employees to develop solutions for various problems that exist within our respective institutions.


Unlike user groups, OHTA is not allied with any particular service platform or product; and in fact, OHTA members use many different products and services.


OHTA schedules quarterly meetings with continuing education opportunities along with some vendor interactions. OHTA partners with the Michigan chapter (MATH) to host an annual three-day fall conference which alternates sites each year between the two states.


The dues structure is modest, and OHTA welcomes anyone dealing with Telecommunications service in an Ohio hospital to join in the transfer of knowledge and the sharing of experience. 

Scholarships and Certifications

OHTA offers an annual scholarship to a deserving student who is a family member of an OHTA member, and is working toward a career in the Communications, Telecommunications, or other Technology field. The qualifications may change from year-to-year, however, this scholarship is an important contribution to learning.


Continuing education is a key part of the OHTA mission and we sponsor a wide range of certification classes.  Our certification program is currently in transition.  Please check back again to learn more about OHTA opportunities for education and certification.
