Our speaker selection committee is looking for dynamic presentations regarding innovative and collaborative health information technology success stories as well as lessons learned. We will evaluate the proposed program for its evidence-based educational content, quality, applicability to HIMSS’ membership, and speaker qualifications. Priority consideration will go to topics that are unique, innovative, or otherwise represent current issues in health information technology. We also want to involve as many organizations as practical. If you work for an organization that sells a health information technology product or service, the description of your company must be limited to the first slide only to support the mission of enhancing professional knowledge through education. You are also encouraged to co-present with a Healthcare provider organization.
