Welcome to the HIMSS Alabama Chapter website! We are working hard to fulfill our mission of leading change in the healthcare IT field through knowledge sharing, advocacy, collaboration, innovation, education, and community affiliations in Alabama. In just a few short weeks, we will be hosting a reception at National HIMSS in Las Vegas along with our neighbors, Louisiana and Mississippi. Then in April we will have our spring conference which you can view and register for here.
2015 was a challenging year for our members through ICD-10 implementation, Meaningful use attestation, all while keeping our patients as the top priority in our endeavors. 2016 will no doubt present its own unique challenges as our industry continues to experience incredible change. It is the goal of our Chapter Leaders to provide our membership with exceptional education and the newest information and resources to overcome these challenges. Members continually tell us that networking with their peers is one of the most valuable resources that comes with their HIMSS membership. Please make time to join us at one of our educational events and see for yourself how valuable connecting with your peers can be.
You are well represented by quite a few exceptional leaders that make up the Board of Directors. It is through their time and talents that we are able to deliver for our members each day, and I am honored to serve with them as President. I’d like to encourage each of you to consider getting more involved in our chapter this year – participate in all our conferences, serve as a panelist or on a committee, lead a roundtable discussion or mentor a new member. Your involvement strengthens our Chapter! Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the board members regarding ways to get more involved in the HIMSS Alabama Chapter.
Thank you, and Go HIMSS!
