Maryland Health Information Management Systems Society (MDHIMSS) is pleased to announce our 11th Annual Advocacy event being held in Annapolis, Maryland on Thursday, January 25th, 2018 at Governor Calvert House from 5:00pm to 8:30pm.  This event focuses on three topics: Opportunities for addressing the opiate epidemic through health information technology, clinical decision support and health information exchange; how the use of telehealth can be expanded in Maryland to improve patient access to care, patient outcomes, and patient satisfaction; and the intersection of the two topics (how telehealth can be applied to the opioid epidemic). We will also have tabletop demonstrations related to these topics.

You will have the opportunity to meet and network with legislators from the House of Delegates, Senate and the Office of Governor Hogan during our evening event including hors d'oeuvre and cocktails.

Your legislators are very interested in hearing your suggestions to further improve our State's healthcare. This years' 90-day legislative session is set to have a fast start on Jan. 10th with numerous bills already being drafted for introduction; many that will impact healthcare.  Join us in being a resource to our legislators by helping to further educate and provide resourceful information related to healthcare IT.

To attend you MUST REGISTER by January 22nd.

There is NO FEE for MDHIMSS Members. For Non-Members the fee of $60 covers admission plus a ONE YEAR free membership to MDHIMSS!

Thank you for your participation and we look forward to seeing you on January 25th.
