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.
