HIMSS Partners with Opportunity Hub to Bring Students to HIMSS20

HIMSS and Opportunity Hub (OHUB) are partnering to invite 50 college and university students to attend HIMSS20, all expenses paid, to experience the many career pathways and opportunities that exist in health technology.

OHUB.HIMSS is an innovative Health Equity Initiative created to increase the pipeline of early technical and non-technical talent at HIMSS member companies and beyond. OHUB at HIMSS sessions at HIMSS20 will take place March 9-11, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET.

OHUB is the leading technology, startup entrepreneurship and venture ecosystem building platform, created for everyone, everywhere. OHUB will source student applicants from its 5,000+ OHUB.Campus members, who are currently studying at more than 350 colleges and universities across the country. Members of the OHUB.HIMSS cohort will receive round trip travel, hotel, meals, HIMSS20 registration and the opportunity to connect and interview with HIMSS hiring partners. Students interested in participating are invited to apply for scholarship consideration.

OHUB and HIMSS welcome corporations, venture backed startups and foundations to be a part of this new initiative. Key players in this space are encouraged to explore the OHUB.HIMSS Partner Presentation. Cigna | Express scripts has signed on as the first Founding Health Equity Partner of OHUB.HIMSS.

The promise of information and technology to transform health is still out of reach for many people, complicated by factors like high costs, regulatory fatigue and risk adversity. Expansive, complex, day-to-day issues also continue to overwhelm and exhaust health information and technology professionals, obstructing their ability to prioritize the patient and improve health and wellness for all.

HIMSS20 attendees will connect with experts to experience education, innovation and collaboration that are unmatched by any other health conference. HIMSS20 calls health information and technology professionals around the world to one essential, simple, bold action: Be the change.
