Welcome to the Midwest Gateway Chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). As one of the 54 affiliated chapters of HIMSS, our purpose is to bring healthcare professionals together to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences, provide timely communication regarding emerging healthcare IT issues, and to assist members in their professional growth. For 2016/2017, the Midwest Gateway Chapter will focus its programs, events, and activities in three areas: timley and relevant education, visibility as to the role and resources of HIMSS both locally and nationally, and professional development of our members.
As the local chapter of a large international member-based not-for-profit organization, we hope to provide the appropriate forum for our 600+ members for educational, networking, advocacy, and professional development events and activities. As a member-run organization, we welcome and an all members who are interested in becoming active in the local chapter to contact myself or one of the other Midwest Chapter Board members.
Thank you for your interest and support of the Midwest Gateway Chapter of HIMSS. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming chapter meetings and events.
Scott Rich President, Midwest Gateway Chapter HIMSS
