Events & Education

Central & North Florida Chapter of HIMSS Events

Welcome to our Events & Education Section.

We know that your time is valuable and you want the most out of webinars, education sessions, and programs. It is our goal to meet the needs of our members and we are committed to developing programs based on healthcare industry topics which you have requested. We have all been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and while we are still looking for the opportunity to be able to meet face to face, we will be conducting all our online programs using the ZOOM platform. Below are some of the types of programs we are planning for this FY 2021.

Online Panel Sessions:

We have lined up a group of healthcare & industry experts to provide updates on key industry topics.  All events will be held from 4:30pm-6:30pm:

  • February 17, 2021- The Case of Interoperability
  • May 19, 2021- Digital Transformation: Planning in the Midst and Post Pandemic

Networking Events:

We know the importance of meeting face to face to build connections and learn from each other, so when conditions improve, we will get back to meeting you all in person. Until then, we will use digital platforms to host regional networking events to engage with our members, providers, and vendors. These events will be held from 5pm-7pm:
