Washington HIMSS on COVID-19

Dear Members,

A few weeks ago, HIMSS National made the difficult decision to move HIMSS20 to a virtual event for the first time in its 58 year history. For those of you who were registered to attend HIMSS this year, HIMSS will be offering HIMSS Digital to all HIMSS 20 registrants as well as complimentary registration for HIMSS 2021.

In light of the current pandemic, the Washington HIMSS Chapter has also decided to postpone any in-person events until June 1st, 2020. To that end, the HIMSS Chapter will be looking to offer virtual events during this time. Organizations that are interested in collaborating with the Washington HIMSS Chapter to deliver timely and relevant information during this crisis are encouraged to reach out.

Lastly, we think it is essential to stay healthy and stay informed from reliable sources.  The following is a list of identified resources that will keep you up-to-date as we continue to fight this invisible enemy. If you had an additional resource you would like to share, please contact us, and we can add it to the list.
