Gain exclusive access to the healthcare technology leaders today by supporting WVHIMSS and the medical community of WV.
The West Virginia Chapter of HIMSS (WVHIMSS) is a non-profit organization formed in 2006 dedicated to improving healthcare for the residents of WV through Information Technology. WVHIMSS brings together a diverse group of healthcare professionals and organizations throughout the state focusing on leadership, collaboration, knowledge sharing, education and advocacy.
The Board of WVHIMSS clearly recognizes the value of establishing strong partnerships with our vendor partners to ensure continued growth and success of state healthcare IT initiatives through the work of our chapter. The success of our chapter and its future work requires continued support from our vendor sponsors. Without strong sponsorship support, our chapter will not have the resources to expand our membership and support to our communities.
Sponsoring WVHIMSS is the perfect venue to meet the state’s healthcare leaders, spark innovation, and make a difference that will keep your business at the forefront of the demanding medical marketplace. Sponsors will also benefit by influencing the education topics, reaching a broader base through speaking, presenting, or hosting special events, and shaping the future of the group.
Our 2017-2018 year brings new sponsorship opportunities through our bi-annual conference events. These sponsorship opportunities include:
- Support our fall and spring conferences by providing speakers or by offering to help cover dinners, drinks and snacks. This calendar year WVHIMSS will be offering
