I encourage you to visit our website often (http://indiana.himsschapter.org/) for information about upcoming events, resources, and opportunities for involvement.


Two major events are planned for the 2017-2018 year:


  1. The Health Informatics Tri-State Summit - October 12, 2017 provided by the University of Southern Indiana in partnership with IN HIMSS (http://www.usi.edu/health/continuing-education/fall-programs/)

  2. The Midwest Fall Technology Conference – October 22-24, 2017 an annual collaboration of the HIMSS Midwest Area Chapters - Indiana, Wisconsin Dairyland, Greater Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Iowa (http://mwftc.org/)


Speaking of involvement – there are many opportunities for you to engage with your fellow chapter members: attending an event, volunteering to host and coordinate a meeting, speaking to students at local colleges and universities, or serving on the Chapter Program, Membership or Communications Committees. If you are interested or have any feedback, please contact us at indiana.info@himsschapter.org.


We feel confident you will enjoy the many opportunities the HIMSS Indiana Chapter will provide to network with your peers.


Looking forward to our work together,
