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.
