Chapter Advocacy Roundtable
HIMSS Chapter Advocacy Program
With over 50 HIMSS Chapters across North America including the United States, its territories, and Canada, HIMSS serves as the connection point for members and policy-makers on key health information and technology priorities. The HIMSS Chapter Advocacy program provides an opportunity for each HIMSS chapter to elect or appoint one or more of its members to expand HIMSS priorities through grassroots and grasstops engagement.
Collectively, HIMSS Chapter Advocates make up the HIMSS Chapter Advocacy Roundtable. The Chapter Advocacy Roundtable was established in 2004 to expand HIMSS’s outreach beyond Congressional and federal activities and it is an essential part of the greater HIMSS advocacy network. HIMSS Chapter Advocacy Roundtable members serve as a strong coordinated voice and respected source of information about health information and technology. Chapter Advocacy Roundtable members, through Researching, Educating, Power Building, and Monitoring, are able to influence state and local health information and technology policies.
Throughout the United States and its territories today, over 100 HIMSS Chapter Advocates are engaged in planning and facilitating advocacy and public policy activities within their state or region.
