HIMSS Washington – September 10th Newsletter

In this article:


New HIMSS Washington website and URL – Take a Look!

Ask: Please bookmark as the new chapter website!  The old website URL is no longer available.

Background: HIMSS Washington, along with HIMSS National, is proud to present the new Washington chapter web site (  Over the past year, HIMSS National conducted a selection process for a new website provider.  During the July and August timeframe chapter volunteers have redesigned the chapter websites with a contemporary look/feel and enhanced content and functionality.  On September 1st, 2014 all of the HIMSS chapters transitioned to the new site.

The communications team continues to update our new site on a daily basis and is working with HIMSS National on fixes and future enhancements.  We believe the new site will be a great improvement and provide a better platform to provide you timely information and showcase the terrific events we have planned for 2014/2015. 

In this newsletter, we would like to showcase the Events page and the News and Publications page.  Please take a moment to visit our new site and experience the enhanced capabilities and integration with HIMSS National.

Please pardon our “dust” as we work to stabilize and improve the site over the next several weeks.  We look forward to soliciting your feedback and ideas for the site in the future.

If you have any immediate feedback or comments your input is welcome.

Thank you, your HIMSS Washington Communications Committee.

Peter McComas, HIMSS Washington Communications Chair
