HIMSS Public Policy Center
The HIMSS Government Relations team works closely with policymakers and policy advocates to address digital health issues. Our key issues focus on interoperability, cybersecurity and data stewardship, connected care, value-based care and public and population health. We educate decision-makers at all levels of government and make public policy recommendations on the use of information and technology to transform health.
Building a strong foundation of digital health is critical to our vision of realizing the full health potential of every human, everywhere. To achieve this goal, the tools, technologies and resources must exist so that every person has access to a long-term, comprehensive digital picture of their health.
Working Closely with Government Health Agencies
Governments have put forward a number of initiatives to ensure that the right care is delivered at the right place and time. By supporting a commitment to healthy communities and connecting with policymakers, we can help create a modern public health ecosystem that will enable automated, interoperable, secure and rapid data exchange.
Education. Collaboration. Transformation.
The Institute for e-Health Policy provides research and educational opportunities for public- and private-sector stakeholders—two key constituents that make and are most directly impacted by e-health policy decisions. The institute is part of the HIMSS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization with charitable, scientific and educational goals.
