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 2022-2023 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.

Your Sponsorship Makes A Difference

SC HIMSS uses the contributions of sponsors to help defray the cost of the chapter’s programs making them accessible to all members. Our goals focus on supporting the mission, vision, and values of HIMSS. As a state-level organization we strive to carry out the national 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:

  • Spring Advocacy Day at the General Assembly in Columbia, SC
  • HIMSS national conference networking event
  • Regional networking events and focus groups
  • SC Chapter Annual Fall Conference
  • NEW for 2022: Annual Fall Golf Event (in conjunction with the Annual Fall Conference)
  • Educational and networking-based webinars
  • Other Adhoc events during the year

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 could include:

Patient Engagement Connected Care Cybersecurity
Data Analytics Interoperability Performance Improvement
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Mobility Rural Health

Our educational programs are designed to share expert knowledge and to facilitate networking among our members. In 2022-2023, 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.
