Shape the future of health IT

Service on a HIMSS Committee-focused on specific settings and constituencies within health IT and key industry topics, is an excellent opportunity for professional development, networking and active engagement. 

The Annual Call for Committee Volunteers is currently closed.  The call will open again in January 2016.

“It was the unique opportunity presented that attracted me the most. As a workgroup and committee volunteer, I’m able to give back to our industry at the same time I’m on the front lines of the most current technology trends and meeting some of the most relevant people in our market. Our work - the HIE Tool Kit and real-time HIE Survey Results - are really making an impact too!”

-Charlie Rogers, Chair, Health Information Exchange Committee
