Colorado Chapter of HIMSS

President's Welcome Address

Welcome to the Colorado Chapter of HIMSS!


We’re excited you are interested in our chapter and healthcare IT. In the United States there are approximately 200,000 preventable deaths due to healthcare errors and that makes this the third leading cause of death. I fundamentally believe there is significant opportunities for healthcare and information technology to partner together to increase the safety and reliability of the care we provide. The field of healthcare is rapidly changing and IT is at the heart of our care delivery. Our chapter endeavors to partner our IT professionals, healthcare providers and organizations to improve the care of our patients and communities. We are driven to provide high quality educational programs, networking opportunities, and foster partnerships that further our use of IT to improve healthcare delivery. We welcome your ideas, participation, and partnership – through all of us working together, we will achieve our goal.






Colorado Chapter won the 2015 HIMSS Medium Chapter Of The Year!!

This coveted and prestigious award is designed to recognize Chapters who have connected in a meaningful way with health IT entities and initiatives in their geographic regions.
The Colorado Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (CHIMSS), provides Colorado's healthcare professionals with outstanding educational conferences, networking opportunities, and a forum for the interchange of ideas among those committed to the goal of improving patient care through the effective use of information technology.

CHIMSS is an award-winning chapter of the national Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). Membership is not required to attend educational conferences, and national membership is not required to join the Colorado chapter. Yet membership provides deep discounts, and many other benefits.

CHIMSS members come from diverse backgrounds, all involved in some aspect of health care information systems and management. Members include physicians, nurses and other clinicians, information services executives, project managers, administrators, and consultants. Many are the key leaders and decision-makers in their respective institutions throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

CHIMSS services are dependent on the volunteer efforts of our Board of Directors and Committee Members. 


We are proud to recognize and thank CHIMSS SPONSORS:
