Here is what some of our clients are saying about the HIMSS Organizational Affiliate Program:

“The primary reasons that we became an Organizational Affiliate were the unlimited number of memberships for our staff, the complimentary passes to the Annual Conference, and to help grow membership in our local HIMSS chapter. We’ve made a point to have not only our IT directors join, but we've also invited our CMO, some key nursing executives, and some non-traditional IT staff to join an get involved with HIMSS as well.”

Indranil Ganguly, FHIMSS
VP and CIO
CentraState Healthcare System

“The most valuable part of the Organizational Affiliate (OA) program is the free education for our staff. We've had to cut some other organizational memberships this year, but the free educational resources that are part of the OA program have helped us keep this one on the books. In additional to the education, the online publications and access to other HIMSS members are also very valuable components of the program for Allina.”

Susan A. Heichert, RN, BSN, FHIMSS
SVP, CIO
Allina Hospitals and Clinics

“The free passes to the Annual Conference made the whole membership worth buying. I knew that HIMSS was the organization to be part of for health IT, and when we saw the Organizational Affiliate program, it was a no-brainer for us to sign up.”

Brian LaForgia
Health Information Technology Manager
The Children’s Aid Society

“We joined initially for the Annual Conference passes. That made the Organizational Affiliate program worth while all by itself. But really, it's been one of the best investments our organization has made. HIMSS is a goldmine of information and resources for our entire staff.”

By plugging into the Organizational Affiliate program, we can now learn best practices from the outside, and maximize our existing technology from the inside.”
