Alabama HIMSS has been awarded the Chapter Advocacy Award!
The HIMSS Chapter Task Force comprises chapter advocates from U.S. and Canadian HIMSS chapters and provides opportunities to amplify HIMSS’s public policy priorities through outreach and relationship building—both grassroots with government officials, and grasstops with thought leaders and non-profit organizations.
Task Force members serve as a strong, coordinated voice and respected source of information on health information and technology, influencing state, provincial and local policy. The task force meets monthly and provides an opportunity for networking and peer-to-peer learning.
- Research: We conduct nonpartisan analysis and research, and gather information through community conversations, focus groups and more.
- Education: We organize Chapter Advocacy Days to educate and form relationships with elected officials.
- Power Building: We leverage individual and collective influence around issues through nonpartisan political messaging, letter writing campaigns, coalition building, and relationship building with government officials, staff and other community leaders.
- Monitoring: We monitor legislation, policies and practices to identify advocacy and partnership opportunities.
