HIMSS South Florida Board Welcome

South Florida Chapter of Health Information Management Systems Society (SFLHIMSS) proudly serves the Health IT Professionals of the local South Florida area. Our chapter is continuously growing and has reached nearly 2000 members including Healthcare Providers, Health IT Vendors, Innovators, Educators, and Students. Our membership includes all levels of skills and experience from seasoned professionals to those considering healthcare IT as a career and includes C-Suite Professionals, Vice Presidents, Directors, Managers, Analysts, Professors and Students.  The State of Florida is unique and South Florida has a diverse culture.  We as Healthcare Professionals in South Florida are fortunate to have so many ways to collaborate with other healthcare-focused organizations to bring you relevant information to help you stay current and be innovative in your profession. We are committed to providing a forum for thought leadership, guiding policy at the state and national level, and providing networking to help our organizations better serve the community and our members advance in their careers.  We are here to help guide you in a direction for continuous improvements, educate, innovate and stay at the forefront of healthcare IT.

Despite uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our chapter continues to provide valued educational and informative events to help you to stay up-to-date and knowledgeable.  Our primary focus is engaging the Health Technology Community on topics such as interoperability, telehealth, cybersecurity, patient engagement, consumerism,  EMR implementation best practices, digital transformation, data & analytics, innovation, and much more. Our members at HIMSS South Florida greatly benefit from these engagements.

The more engaged our members are in SFLHIMSS, the more they get out of their membership!  We hope for your participation and encourage you to take advantage of all the chapter has to offer.  There are several ways to get involved in the South Florida HIMSS.  Contact us at sfl.info@himsschapter.org for more information - fresh perspectives are always WELCOME!
