T.I.G.E.R. HIMSS18 Reflections
From one year to another, my experience at the HIMSS Conference gets more and more fascinating not only because of the unique educational offerings but because of the communities created within the organization and the impact they have toward the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare. HIMSS18 was very special for me for two reasons:
The Indiana Chapter of HIMSS received for the first time the Medium Chapter of the Year Award. Serving as the IN HIMSS President, it is hard to describe the inner satisfaction that we all gained in knowing that through our collective efforts we have made the Indiana Chapter of HIMSS an outstanding one.
For the first time, I participated in the Global T.I.G.E.R. Leadership and Community meetings, with one objective in mind: to be a part of this admirable group of people whose mission is to improve education and advance interprofessional community development. There is nothing more rewarding than joining forces with so many passionate individuals who give so generously their time and efforts to advance the quality of healthcare worldwide.
I left Las Vegas with so much enthusiasm and great ideas, knowing that there is still so much to do. I am extremely optimistic knowing that our ability to accomplish remarkable things hinges on how well we work together - And this is precisely what T.I.G.E.R./HIMSS is all about.
