A Message from Virginia HIMSS President

Virginia HIMSS Community,

In a world where the fusion of healthcare and technology forges new pathways to wellness, it’s our privilege and duty to lead the charge. As your president, I’m not just excited; I’m inspired by what lies ahead for us. The recent HIMSS 2024 conference in Orlando showcased the dynamic synergy between innovation and care that we’re all part of. Here are a few highlights that underscore our shared journey:

  • AI in Action: Beyond theory, we saw AI’s real-world impact, from streamlining administrative burdens to enhancing diagnostic accuracy. This isn’t the future—it’s our now, making healthcare more efficient and empathetic.
  •  Fortifying Cybersecurity: In the wake of significant cyber threats, we’re reminded of our critical role in safeguarding the healthcare ecosystem. Through advanced threat detection and comprehensive staff training, we’re not just responders; we’re protectors.
  • Policy and Collaboration: The evolving global health landscape calls for adaptable regulations and unwavering collaboration. Our strength lies in unity, bridging tech companies with healthcare providers, and aligning public and private sectors.

Why HIMSS? Why Now?

  • Be at the forefront of healthcare transformation, where technology meets human need.
  • Engage with a community that’s shaping the future of healthcare IT.
  • Access resources and insights that will elevate your impact in the healthcare sector.

As we reflect on these advancements and look forward to our symposium, I’m reminded of the indispensable value of each member in our community. Your dedication fuels our progress, your insights shape our path, and together, we’re not just navigating the future of healthcare IT; we’re defining it.

Let’s embrace this journey with open hearts and curious minds. Together, we’ll continue to innovate, protect, and connect, ensuring that our contributions today pave the way for a healthier tomorrow.

With gratitude and anticipation,

Rob Perry
