HIMSS Oregon Chapter 


A Call to Connect:
Shaping Tomorrow's Healthcare Landscape

It's now a familiar refrain: over the last two years, so much has changed in healthcare. When we last met in person for the annual conference in 2019, our theme was on "embracing disruption." And we certainly did! Healthcare continues to evolve, as patient preferences, continued provider burnout, and crisis levels of mental health needs force us to adapt how we deliver care. 

Next week we'll once again gather together in person* for the 2022 HIMSS Oregon Chapter's Annual Conference bringing together senior leaders across healthcare to explore the next era in healthcare.
