Nebraska HIMSS President's Message

Dear Fellow Nebraska HIMSS members,

I’m very excited to take on the role of your chapter’s president for the next 12 months. Since you elected a doctor as your president, I’m going to work hard to bring some of increased focus on our clinical informatics members and programs while continuing to support excellence in our operational and technical programs offerings.


Wanda Kelly is the new chair of our programs committee. She and the committee are putting together an outstanding program for our fall meeting. It will be the afternoon of Wednesday, October 25th and will continue on the morning of Thursday, October 25th at the Embassy Suites in La Vista in conjunction with the Nebraska Hospital Association Annual Convention. Mark your calendars as you’re not going to want to miss this one.


Matt Rau is our new communications chair. He’s got some great plans to keep you informed about your chapter’s activities. Follow us on Facebook at Twitter at @NEHIMSS or LinkedIn at


The pace of change in our industry is accelerating every year and it isn’t going to slow down in the foreseeable future. It has never been more important to be good at what we do. And the best way to accomplish that goal is to work together, network and share best practices. Speaking for myself, I find myself catching up with my Nebraska colleagues at national meetings instead of local functions. That’s pretty crazy, but we live in crazy times. You goal of your chapter’s leadership to to make Nebraska HIMSS the vehicle that promotes networking and sharing across the state.
