Colorado Chapter has won HIMSS Medium Chapter Of The Year!!

The Colorado Chapter Board of Directors is excited to share that the Colorado Chapter has received the 2015 "Chapter of the Year" award in the medium chapter category.  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.
Award and scholarship recipients were honored at the HIMSS Awards Gala on Thursday, March 3 at 6:30pm during the 2016 HIMSS Conference in Las Vegas. 
We are grateful for our amazing Board and Member Volunteers who have dedicated their time and talent to our Chapter!  
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:
