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.
