Another year has come and gone and each seems to be busier than the last. With that in mind, the Alabama Chapter of HIMSS has worked hard to bring education, collaboration and networking opportunities to our members all over the state.
There are many ways that you can participate and engage through the chapter. Each month look out for networking events held across the state. Quarterly you can participate in educational webinars and stay up to date with our eNewsletter. There are also annual events like the AL Healthcare Summit (Birmingham) in October, GC3 (New Orleans) in November and Spring Conference (Huntsville) in April of 2018. We hope you will join us and take advantage of what the Alabama Chapter of HIMSS has to offer.
Behind the scenes, our Advocacy team is working with our State Legislators to bring recognition to Healthcare IT issues and policy. Our work supports efforts to advance improvements to the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare in Alabama.
All of this work would not be possible without the dedication of our Board of Directors, committee members, sponsors and volunteers. We encourage our members to consider how you can be more involved in our chapter mission. Reach out to myself or any of the Board of Directors if you would like to know more about furthering your participation within the chapter.
Keeping up in the ever changing, fast paced world of Healthcare IT can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned professionals. Through advocacy, collaboration, education and innovation, our mission is to not only keep up with the change, but to lead it. Welcome to the Alabama Chapter of HIMSS!
President, Alabama Chapter of HIMSS
