South Carolina Chapter Sponsorship Program

The South Carolina Chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (SC HIMSS)is a volunteer organization whose primary goals are to develop educational and regional networking programs and provide statewide leadership for the advancement and management of healthcare information and technology. With the backing of HIMSS which operates on a national and even international scale, we participate in shaping the healthcare industry, encouraging the use of technology and promoting public policies that will improve healthcare delivery.

SCHIMSS is offering sponsorships for our educational and networking events for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Your sponsorship helps SC HIMSS offer valuable educational programming at a very affordable price for attendees. Sponsorship will benefit your business through exposure to our session attendees. SC HIMSS is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization.

SC HIMSS uses the contributions of sponsors to help defray the cost of the chapter’s programs making them accessible to additional members. The South Carolina Chapter has implemented a flexible sponsorship program allowing organizations to best align their marketing goals and resources. The various sponsorship levels provide an opportunity for organizations of all sizes to participate and raise awareness of their offerings within the local healthcare community.

As South Carolina HIMSS, our goals focus on supporting the mission, vision, and values of HIMSS. As a state-level organization we strive to carry out HIMSS’ mission at the local level and to serve as a conduit of information to and from the national organization.

During a typical year, we offer networking and educational events, including our Spring Advocacy Day at the General Assembly, the HIMSS national conference luncheon, regional networking events, focus groups, our always popular – SC Chapter Annual Fall Conference as well as our “Spring Fling”.

Our educational programs are designed to share expert knowledge and to facilitate networking among our members. In 2019-2020, will continue to communicate to our members through webinars and emails and allow sponsors to provide educational sessions surrounding their vision for healthcare information management and technology. We are actively engaged in social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linked-in which offer additional exposure to your organization. Topics presented do require board approval and should offer relevant Healthcare IT content. We have polled our SCHIMSS chapter members and popular topics to present include Patient Engagement, Data Analytics, Mobility, AI, Performance Improvement and Security.

There are various forms of sponsorship for events with increased benefits as the value of sponsorship increases. Please Contact our Sponsorship Chair, Kristina Mears at (770) 330-6472 or krismea@cdw.com if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or have questions about the process. You may also simply fill out a sponsorship form on our web site at www.schimss.org.
