The Western Pennsylvania Chapter of HIMSS is one of over forty affiliated chapters of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, the largest health care information systems professional organization in the nation. An affiliated Chapter provides a local forum to discuss new issues and developments, learn about new methods and tools, and network with others with similar experiences. HIMSS National recently provided a vehicle for unified membership – a membership in HIMSS National includes one chapter membership at no extra cost. The following is a summary of some of the benefits of membership in a regional chapter.
