SimGHOSTS / HIMSS Affiliation
In 2016, SimGHOSTS affiliated with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). SimGHOSTS hopes to provide simulation technology training sessions at future HIMSS events!
The purpose of this affiliation is to establish a mutual synergistic and complementary relationship between HIMSS and SimGHOSTS to offer opportunities to educate and support innovation and simulation objectives and industry best practices to deliver the highest quality of person-centered care.
HIMSS North America, a business unit within HIMSS, positively transforms health and healthcare through the best use of information technology in the United States and Canada.
