Beatty Group LogoBeatty Group is a full service meeting and convention planning company. We are based in Portland, Oregon and have been in operation since 1992.

In the early 90’s Beatty Group was the corporate travel agency for MedicaLogic based in Hillsboro, Oregon. MedicaLogic, under the direction of Dr. Mark Leavitt, introduced a product called Logician – a leading edge Electronic Medical Record program.

In 1998, MedicaLogic wanted to start a User Group conference for their Logician customers. They asked Beatty Group to assist with the planning of this new group. The first conference was held in Chicago with about 50 attendees.

Over the last 16 years, Beatty Group has been managing the logistics and marketing of the now named, Centricity Healthcare User Group (CHUG) conference. We enjoy working with the rotating, volunteer CHUG Board of Directors, conference sponsoring companies and of course interacting with the Centricity Users that attend the conferences.

Taking part in the growth of this event from 50 participants to over 700 has been challenging and exciting. We look forward to continuing the partnership with CHUG for many years to come!
