This session presents the results from a statewide collaboration between the Virginia Chapter of HIMSS and the four state Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters undertaken in 2015 to develop and field a cross-training program for health IT project managers and healthcare practitioners. Learn how to leverage publicly available materials to create training programs in your organization and how to form partnerships that deliver results. Presented by Cherie Pardue ( and Richard G.
