A Message from VA HIMSS President
Welcome to the online home of the Virginia HIMSS Chapter. We are glad you are here.
Virginia HIMSS has a long history of supporting healthcare in the Commonwealth. We are payers, service providers, suppliers and providers who come together for professional growth, education, community benefit and fun.
I invite you to join us.
The Board of Directors has worked hard over the last couple of years to continue to provide value to the chapter. These individuals put in countless hours as volunteers alongside their professional careers to run the chapter and bring high quality content to our meetings and events. I am incredibly grateful for their service and am humbled to serve as President for the year.
Our premier event every year is the Fall Conference. This year, it is happening in person at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg September 26th through the 28th. We also welcome you to join our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) as they host various events around the state focusing on Women in Health IT, Digital Consumer Experience, Analytics, and Security. And in late winter, we will host an Advocacy Day focused on current government health policies and regulations, offering educational sessions and expert advice to our membership.
I wish you all the best this year as we all continue to find our way forward and hope to see you at our events.
Mike Canfield, FACHE, CHCIO, CPHIMS
