Who We Are
The Central Pennsylvania HIMSS Chapter is our local extension of HIMSS National. We are a diverse group of experienced healthcare professionals working throughout central Pennsylvania. We work at hospitals, corporate health systems, consulting firms, vendor organizations, universities, and a wide variety of other organizations. Many of us are the decision makers in our organizations. Our members range from senior executives to analysts and students. We have technical members and clinical members. The majority of our members have well over ten years of experience in the healthcare field.
Our purpose is to promote the understanding of healthcare information and management systems, processes and technologies to our members and our community in the Central Pennsylvania Region. We want to assist the members of our chapter and others in developing their knowledge, increasing their effectiveness and maintaining high quality standards of performance through continuing education. This is accomplished through meetings and networking events that encourage members to share ideas and exchange experiences in the field of healthcare information and management systems. Local industry leaders and subject matter experts share their knowledge at various event offerings.
