Latest NJHIMSS News


Welcome to New Jersey HIMSS 

We are a non-profit organization focused on providing leadership in healthcare information technology management. 

The Chapter promotes professional approaches to the operation, development, and improvement of health care information and management systems that support the provision of high quality patient care at the lowest practical cost. 

Thank You for making our Fall Annual Conference memorable!

With a pre-election year upon us and Healthcare IT legislation continuing to be a key topic of discussion among the political forums, we were thrilled to host the 8thAnnual Regional DV-NJ Chapters HIMSS Conference, “The Politics of Healthcare”; our premier educational and networking event on October 28th-30th at Harrah’s in Atlantic City.

The event was a success from start to finish.  We started with a golf outing that was threatened by weather, but the rain actually held off and those who played got to enjoy a great round of golf and networking on the Bay course at the Seaview Hotel & Golf Club.  After golf, the festivities began back at Harrah’s in the new state-of-the-art convention center.  We had a packed house on Wednesday evening for a cocktail networking mixer. On Thursday our conference officially began with 3 amazing keynotes, 24 educational sessions, an interoperability showcase and over 85 vendors in the exhibit hall.  Thursday’s activities concluded with a cocktail reception in the exhibit hall and then we wrapped things up on Friday morning.

Once again, thank you to our members, sponsors and volunteers for making this a successful event!

We are still accepting surveys about the keynotes and track presentations.  Click on the below link to complete a survey:
