A word from the Physician Committee Chair

Until recently, much of what I have accomplished for my physician colleagues and organization has been by the sweat of my own brow. I found myself increasingly frustrated becasue I could not accomplish all the tasks that I viewed as being necessary to improve the care, experience and fiscal goals of our patients, providers and our healthcare system as a whole. I realized that I needed to find ways to extend beyond myself and collaborate with like-minded colleagues both within and outside my organization. Serving on the HIMSS Physician Committee has given me such opportunities. As many in my situation experience, time is a precious commodity. However, any contributions I have made to the committee have been returned back to me multifold in the collaborations and connections that will benefit me, my work and my organization long into the future.
John Lee, MD, HIMSS Physician Committee Chair, FY18
