Midwest Gateway Chapter of HIMSS

 

Dear Midwest Gateway Chapter Member,

Welcome to the Midwest Gateway Chapter of the national Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).  Our purpose is to bring together healthcare technology professionals in our Midwest region to promote the exchange of:  knowledge, ideas, best practices and experiences.  We assist members in their professional growth, and provide communication regarding emerging healthcare information and technology.

Especially, during this crucial time in healthcare, we will support each other. We will work together as leaders to make progress in healthcare innovation so, we can better service our healthcare providers, patients and communities.

Covid has upended so many of our lives and careers, and the chapter is developing new virtual educational programs and networking events for our members.  Additionally, we are in the process of revamping our website, social media and re-branding as part of our new digital enhancements for members and sponsors. 

We encourage involvement in one of our chapter committee leadership roles to enhance your experience and connections locally.  Currently, we are seeking volunteer committee members in:  Programs, Publications/Communications, Advocacy, Sponsorships and Student Liaison.  Please contact our info@midwestgateway.org if you are interested in learning more.

All members working for healthcare suppliers, join our growing list of Chapter Sponsors to improve your visibility with our membership.

There are also opportunities to donate to our student Scholarship fund that is in conjunction with HIMSS national. Our board felt that it was even more important to provide scholarships this year during Covid.

We greatly appreciate our members and sponsors, thank you for your continued support.

Sue O’Neal
President
