The HIMSS HIT User Experience Committee will serve as a structured focal point through which HIMSS can leverage the interest and knowledge of the fast growing HIT User Experience Community, and maintain its role as an influential voice in the next phase of HIT adoption, in which the true value of HIT will be realized through improved interfaces and safety enhanced design.
