HIMSS Michigan Chapter Sponsorship Program (2021-2022)

The HIMSS Michigan Chapter relies on the support of our sponsors and industry partners to continue to offer our Chapter members meaningful events, information, and an active Advocacy Group, which works to advance the use of HIT in support of health initiatives across local, state and federal governments.  We are committed to providing a platform and a venue for our supporting sponsors to increase their visibility and value to Chapter members in return for financial support.  That financial support allows the Chapter to bring information, educational sessions, networking, and thought-leadership to its membership on a regular basis throughout the calendar year.
