MD HIMSS Transformation

MD HIMSS has a place for you!

To make MD HIMSS more accessible and relevant to you, where you are everyday, the chapter is transforming!  The officers and board are committed to building on the great work you have been doing to make MD HIMSS even better!

Broadly, the chapter is re-forming around what we call Pillar Committees.  These committees form the backbone of the chapter, and are segmented into the following areas: 

  1. Technology and Infrastructure
  2. Clinical Applications and Informatics
  3. Data Analytics and Exchange
  4. Cybersecurity
  5. Revenue Cycle Management

Each of these committees will create and manage its own events, professional development curriculum, and communications.  The board will provide oversight through cross-matrixed Functional Committees.  

By reorganizing the chapter this way, we created a place for you in MD HIMSS more closely aligned with the amazing work you do every day to heal our patients and improve healthcare in Maryland!

If you are just entering health information management as a career, the committees and their programs provide a place for you to learn and network in meaningful to advance your knowledge and career.

Health information management gurus, this is your opportunity to give back and share the knowledge and wisdom accumulated through years of experience in Maryland's dynamic healthcare environment.

As a mid-level manager, involvement in MD HIMSS allows you to build your skillset as a leader amongst your peers, learning the finer points of our profession that you can implement the next day at work.

Finally, senior leaders can encourage staff members to learn and grow in a no-risk environment where they can collaborate and excel with other emerging leaders from other organizations to bring all the best ideas back to your team.

There's something for everyone in this new MD HIMSS, and we are incredibly excited to invite you to join, or even recommit, to a brighter healthcare future in Maryland.
