In May, health care information technology professionals worldwide gathered on the Web for the HIMSS Virtual Conference and Expo, which acted as an extension to the Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition.

The virtual conference featured two high-level keynote sessions including a kickoff from former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, MD, and 12 education seminars covering the gamut of topics driving health care today—all of which are available online, on demand through August 17.

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) first online Conference and Expo drew over 2,200 attendees from the medical and health care IT industry.

The next HIMSS Virtual Conference will be November 6-7. More information can be found on the organization’s Web site.
