2019 SC HIMSS Scholarship Winners

Please help us congratulate our Winners for 2019

Congratulations to both Shannon Sommers and Sujata Aryal as our esteemed 2019 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 1,100 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!
