HIMSS18 is Global AND Local

More than sixty government officials representing 24 state, territorial and local governments in the U.S., Canada, and Australia are convening at HIMSS18 next week! We will cover several health information and technology grassroots priorities, including HIMSS Chapter Advocacy, telehealth, Medicaid, interoperability, the opioid crisis, and disaster preparedness and response. 

For the first time, state officials and HIMSS Chapter Advocates will be interviewed on HIMSS TV about their perspectives on HIMSS18 and what they will bring back to their constituencies. Interviewees include former Governors Jim Douglas of Vermont and Jim Geringer of Wyoming, Maryland Delegate Dr. Dan Morhaim, Pennsylvania Representative Jesse Topper, and Dr. Esteban Gershanik, CIO of the Louisiana Department of Health. 

Lauren Wiseman and Hank Fanberg, HIMSS Chapter Advocates representing the HIMSS Greater Illinois and Louisiana Chapters, respectively, will also be interviewed on the value of chapter advocacy with examples from Hank’s tireless advocacy efforts in Louisiana. Hank Fanberg will be awarded the Chapter Advocate of the Year award at the annual State Advisory and Chapter Advocacy Lunch at HIMSS18. Watch HIMSS TV Live!
