See What One Day of Focused Education Can Do: HIMSS19 Preconference

Some health information and technology issues require a deeper dive – a more intense focus than just an hour or two – with dedicated, up-close, personal interaction and collaboration with experts and colleagues. Topics like big data, blockchain, cloud computing, healthy aging, machine learning and AI, military medical care, precision medicine, process improvement and project management present challenges that require extensive exploration, analysis and problem-solving.

HIMSS19 Preconference programs allow you to do just that.

Experience focused learning and networking while earning continuing education credit during this in-depth event the day before HIMSS19. Connect and collaborate with other champions of health from around the world, discover solutions to challenges, and leave inspired and empowered to continue your quest to transform health.

Preconference symposia, workshops, forums and summits will be held on Monday, March 11, 2019, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.

HIMSS Vice President of Professional Development JoAnn Klinedinst, MEd, CPHIMS, PMP, DES, FHIMSS, FACHE, shares what attendees can expect from HIMSS19 education sessions.
