You're invited to submit an abstract for presentation at the Kentucky Bluegrass and Indiana Chapters of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Annual Spring Conference, April 4-5, 2019.


Presentations should focus on a particular topic or case study that demonstrates lessons learned - as opposed to commercial promotion. We're seeking content that highlights activities throughout Kentucky, Indiana, and surrounding states.


Multiple submissions are welcome. If your presentation is selected, you will receive a complimentary registration to the conference.


Suggested topic areas for consideration:

  • Provider Identification, data integrity, data management

  • Information Governance

  • Data Analytics/Clinical & Business Intelligence

  • Value-based Care/Population Health

  • Clinical Informatics & Clinical Engagement

  • Data Analytics/Clinical & Business Intelligence

  • Process Improvement/Workflow/Change Management

  • Security

  • Interoperability/Adaptability

  • Other



Abstracts will be evaluated against each of these criteria:

  • Quality of the abstract (merit, style, relevance)

  • Educational potential – the presentation should be focused on providing relevant content such as built around a case study or detailing an improvement process

  • Presentations by vendor companies should be accompanied by a provider organization

  • Absence of commercial promotion (products and services) – these abstracts will not be considered.

 Presenters will be notified of abstract selections in early February.



If the presentation is accepted, the presenter(s) will receive a complimentary full conference registration. Limit two (2) presenters per presentation.
Note: Kentucky Bluegrass Chapter of HIMSS does not reimburse for hotel, travel, meals or other presentation-related expenses.
