HIMSS Local Chapters

Chapters represent the grassroots of HIMSS!

There is significant work going on in health information and technology, especially at the local level. Chapter membership brings the benefits home with targeted education, issue updates, networking opportunities, and more.

HIMSS represents 55 chapters across the United States including Puerto Rico, Canada, and India that serve a valuable role in bringing healthcare system professionals together in a local forum.
