State Advisory Roundtable

The HIMSS State Advisory Roundtable is an assembly of influential state and national health information and technology policy leaders and stakeholders. The Roundtable meets quarterly via WebEx to discuss important challenges and opportunities at the state and local levels for which health information and technology might be part of the solution. 

The State Advisory Roundtable’s primary purpose is to create a shared future vision and identify opportunities to connect local, state and federal health information and technology issues.

Moreover, this Roundtable identifies and makes recommendations based on HIMSS Public Policy Principles and priority action items to assist states in utilizing health information and technology to support health information exchange and connecting behavioral, human services and clinical systems, and public/population health. 

The Roundtable maintains situational awareness of the role and value of health information and technology in states relating to:

  • Current issues impacting health status of communities, such as the opioid crises, natural and manmade disasters and emerging infectious diseases
  • Health System Transformation and Delivery Reform
  • Health Information Exchange (connecting behavioral, human services and clinical systems, and public/population health)
  • Telehealth/Telemedicine
  • Remote patient monitoring and mobile health
  • Federal – state funding mechanisms
  • Applied genomics and personalized medicine

The State Advisory Roundtable is led by Jim Geringer, Esri Director and former Governor of Wyoming and Jim Douglas, former Governor of Vermont. For more information on how to participate in the State Advisory Roundtable, please contact Valerie Rogers at
