Sponsorship Program

The Midwest Gateway Chapter of HIMSS is the official local chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society.
As one of the 49 affiliated chapters of HIMSS, an international not-for-profit organization with over 35,000 individual members, 520 corporate members and 120 not-for-profit organizations, we share the mission of transforming healthcare through the effective use of information technology and management systems.

The purpose of our Chapter is to provide healthcare and information technology professionals in our region with a forum to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences, provide timely communication regarding emerging healthcare IT issues, and to assist members and students in their professional growth.

We have over 700 members from healthcare provider organizations, medical schools and universities, technology developers, not-for-profit organizations and government agencies. Our region encompasses the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, Eastern and Central Missouri, and Southern Illinois.

The Midwest Gateway Chapter provides educational programs, networking events and activities to provide timely and relevant education, advocacy and information resources for legislators, visibility for the role of healthcare information technology and informatics in our region, and the professional development of students in healthcare informatics.

Becoming a sponsor of our Chapter gives your organization a direct and ongoing connection to our membership which represents senior management and upper level professionals from virtually every provider system, hospital and academic institution in our region.
Several levels are available and each provides outstanding marketing benefits while supporting our mission to provide educational, scholarship and networking opportunities for the healthcare in our region.

To become a sponsor or to learn more, please contact the VP of Sponsorships.
