SC HIMSS provides South Carolina’s healthcare professionals with outstanding educational conferences, networking opportunities and a forum for the interchange of ideas among those committed to the goal of improving patient care through the effective use of information technology.

2018 Fall Conference Keynote Speaker

Health Information Technology (HIT) often appears as a largely technical endeavor. But HIT operations and policy executive Rebecca Freeman, PhD, has found that 80% of so-called technical issues can actually be traced back to culture, leadership, and human resources — the boots-on-the-ground workforce. In this talk, Rebecca will review key components that impact (and often undermine) the HIT implementation journey, including teamwork, infrastructure, analytics, training, informatics, and more.

2018 SC HIMSS Scholarship Winner’s

Congratulate our Winners

Congratulations to both Ben Martin and Autumne E. Smith as our 2018 Scholarship Winners.
  • Welcome to SC HIMSS, the South Carolina chapter of the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS), a non-profit, volunteer organization focused on better healthcare through information technology.  Our over 700 Chapter members include a healthy mix of providers and vendors, and range from C-level executives to undergraduate students.


    As a volunteer organization, we are both for and by our members.  “For our members” involves education and development of both clinical and technical healthcare professionals in our state.  We do this by providing great programming and educational opportunities via our conferences, networking events, and webinars; supporting students through our Scholarship Program; and using our Advocacy program to educate our legislators, helping them understand issues that are important to our members. “By our members” means that we are dependent on the dedicated volunteers who are on our Board and Committees and who do the work to ensure that our offerings are robust and our Chapter is healthy and growing.


    We want you to join us!  The Chapter has enjoyed steady growth, and we’ve expanded our offerings as that has occurred.  We know we can do more, and we’d like your participation.  There are a lot of easy ways to get involved, and I’m sure you’ll find the experience rewarding!  Please contact me, or any other member of the Board, and we’ll help you plug in to the Chapter in a way that works for you.


    Thank you!

    A Welcome from our President!
