It is that time of year when the Healthcare IT industry gathers for the leading health information and technology conference in the United States. With nearly 45,000 professionals from more than 90 countries gathering for education, innovation, and collaboration, professionals will look to be part of the transformation of health around the world through information and technology. HIMSS20 is here!

The theme at HIMSS20 is ‘Be The Change,’ and the most evident change is to the HIMSS organization itself. With a new brand came a new name for the conference. The organization has refocused its vision and mission on the health and wellness ecosystem. The new conference name is the HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition, and the added word “health” aligns their new vision and mission.

What You Should Know


HIMSS20 will have more than 1,300 health information and technology vendors, over fifteen specialty pavilions focused on today’s hot topics, and well over 450 education sessions. The opportunity to learn and harness the power of the innovation available to you is immense. To get the full value out of the educational experience, you’d probably need a team of employees to attend every session and absorb all of the information. But if you’re strategic and focused, the information you collect can change your organization forever.

Conference education topics for HIMSS20 include Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Privacy, Patient Experience, Data and Analytics, Leadership, Governance, Strategy, Population Health, Telehealth, Value-Based Care Models, and much, much more.

This year’s keynote speakers will offer an interesting perspective on health reform entitled ‘Two Parties, One Stage: A Bold Fireside Chat with Political Party Leaders.’ Former Governors Chris Christie (R-NJ) and Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) will share the stage in the Valencia Ballroom on Friday, March 13, 2020.

In conjunction with HIMSS20, Optimum Healthcare IT will be hosting a CHIME Focus Group on [Day of the Week], March XX, 2020, entitled “Governance: What’s the Big Deal?”. This focus group will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Peacock Spring Room.


Between the exhibits and the forums, the keynotes, and the classes, there’s so much opportunity for networking.  There aren’t many other healthcare IT gatherings that offer this much access to this many influential people.
