About the HIMSS Physician Community

A word from the Physician Committee Chair

Having recently finished out my term on a prior informatics committee with a related organization, I found myself looking for new opportunities to volunteer and contribute to the field. Participating in an effort to educate large numbers of practicing physicians about informatics was appealing to me. In addition to the satisfaction of being able to contribute to the expansion of knowledge of other physicians, I have also made connections with others whom I’ve learned a tremendous amount from.
Cait Cusack, MD, HIMSS Physician Committee Chair, 2014-2016
