President's Welcome


Hello and welcome to the Central and Southern Ohio Chapter of HIMSS. We are happy you have shown an interest in our local chapter. At CSOHIMSS, our core value and goals are to provide education and advocacy, as well as to advance the effectiveness of Information Technology in the Healthcare environment. We are at a pivotal point in healthcare with recent significant changes as compared to decades past, and information and technology has never been more center stage than it is now. Our focus is on topics from big data, interoperability, HIE's, EMR technologies and many other topics affecting the ever changing landscape that we see in today's healthcare ecosystem.

To help support our goal of better healthcare through information technology, we host two main conferences annually. One in the fall and one in the spring, as well as an annual Ohio Healthcare Information Technology (Advocacy) Day in Columbus, OH. Our events focus on topics that are relevant to the modern-day healthcare IT professional, nurse, doctor or healthcare administrator.

If you are a member, sponsor or someone interested in our local chapter, I encourage you to browse our website and look at the many benefits our chapter has to offer. We hope you will participate in our upcoming events and we are always looking for volunteers to help with programs, membership or helping with our board of directors.


We hope to see at our next event and you can stay in touch with us via social media and learn more about our upcoming events and activities via the following sites:
