Message from the Chapter President:
The Board of Directors of the Kentucky Chapter of HIMSS had an amazing 2017-2018. We were able to see unprecedented growth in our spring conference, held at Belterra this past April 12 & 13th, and anticipate continued growth for our fall symposium to be held at Northern Kentucky University on September 21st. We’re already planning our 2019 spring conference and building on this years success. We’ll look forward to seeing you at these events!
A special thank you to our annual sponsors! Your participation and contribution to our chapter helps to make these programs possible.
During HIMSS 2018, the Kentucky Chapter joined with four other North America chapters, participating in a sponsorship program to give back to those who have served or are actively serving our country in the armed forces. This year, the Kentucky HIMSS board has decided to seek and accept applications for a sponsorship within our state. Our desire is to sponsor an individual, serving in active duty in our armed forces, to attend the HIMSS 2019 Conference and Exhibition, February 11 – 15, in Orlando, Florida. Please look for more information on this exciting opportunity!
On September 21, 2018, we will be conducting our Fall Symposium at Northern Kentucky University. We are still in the planning process now - registration and sponsorship opportunities will be published on our website soon!
Throughout the year, our board plans social events. These are an opportunity for you to network with other Healthcare Information and Technology professionals in the area. Our next event is scheduled for August 23rd so please mark your calendars and plan to attend.
Our board is very pleased and excited about what we have planned for this year. We look forward to the opportunity to continue the mission and vision of the Kentucky HIMSS chapter for this coming year.
