HIMSS NYS Student Informatics Conference

The New York State Chapter of HIMSS is sponsoring the first-ever New York State Student Informatics Conference on November 19, 2010, at the New York Academy of Medicine in Manhattan.

It's estimated the nation will need 51,000 new healthcare I.T. professionals to implement ARRA/HITECH. This conference seeks to nurture and develop tomorrow's HIT professionals locally in New York State.

The event will be focused on work force development with panels comprised of employers (e.g. health care organizations, consulting, EHR vendors), former students now working in HIT, and recruiters.
