About the Federal Health Community

The HIMSS Federal Health Community sponsored by Cognosante is a complimentary networking platform and community of profession for HIMSS members who are also federal government employees. Our Community works to:

  • create an environment for members to collaborate in using health IT to improve healthcare delivery
  • foster cross-agency information sharing,
  • provide opportunities to network
  • provide leadership, guidance and domain expertise to HIMSS activities and industry initiatives.

Our mission is to engage thought leaders, policy makers and implementers to promote healthcare transformation through information technology.
