The Physician Committee provides domain expertise, leadership and guidance to HIMSS physician & medical informatics activities, initiatives and collaborations.
A word from the Physician Committee Chair
The HIMSS Physician Community and Physician Committee provides all of us with an excellent forum for a dialog on the ever evolving aspirations for an effective and efficient use of Health IT to improve clinical care delivery models. We hope to continue this work by educating ourselves, our peers and partners, learning from the wider HIMSS committees and stakeholders to influence the direction of national regulations, industry partnerships, and the technology and innovation initiatives that will help shape the future of healthcare.
Physicians & Technology
Physicians around the world are increasingly under pressure to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness, and safety of patient care. Patients are demanding a different type of clinical encounter, and physicians are experiencing new requirements to adopt and use information technologies that are expensive and, neither intuitive, nor user-friendly. Decisions about how care is to be delivered, paid for, and evaluated, are being made at the highest levels, without a cogent, unified physician-created IT roadmap.
HIMSS is building a community that all physicians can leverage to profoundly influence the transformation of healthcare. More information can be found at www.himss.org/physician
