Defining the Future of Transformative Care Today
Purpose and History
The Inaugural HIMSS Student Case Competition (The Competition) provides opportunities for inter-disciplinary teams comprised of undergraduate, graduate, residents, or Fellows to demonstrate proficiency in understanding of the vast body of knowledge that comprises health information technology. By analyzing a HIMSS-supplied case study, teams have the opportunity to “design the future” with an eye towards transformative care today. From this analysis, teams should apply recommendations that support current health information technology practices that involve transformative care while coupling recommendations with advocacy outreach at the Federal and State level.
The Competition was established with a generous donation honoring former HIMSS employee Marc Holland. As a vice president of HIMSS Analytics, Marc was engaged in his life’s work. Although his life was cut short unexpectedly, HIMSS is grateful to honor Marc’s passion and conviction for health information technology with a competition designed for students.
The call for applications will open on Thursday, October 5, 2017 and will close on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 11:59 PM ET. Competition winners will be notified in January 2018. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
