The Innovation Community

We provide domain expertise, leadership and guidance to HIMSS activities, initiatives and collaborations around innovators.

Innovations are fundamentally transforming the healthcare delivery system through the discovery of new solutions, processes or products that challenge existing models. Our community leverages innovation to reach, educate, diagnose, treat, prevent and research through options not formerly available. We also provide domain expertise, leadership and guidance to HIMSS activities, initiatives and resources.
