HIMSS Europe launched the HIMSS Dutch Community at HIMSS Europe’s World of Health IT (WoHIT) event in Nice, France in April 2014. The Community is primarily aimed at Dutch professionals working with healthcare IT from both the public and private sectors.
The HIMSS Dutch Community differs from some other HIMSS communities in that it is driven by an organising team of HIMSS Europe, Nictiz, VMBI and Digitalezorg. Its mission is to create a knowledge transfer between all stakeholders striving towards the same goal of delivering better healthcare through IT. The Community ensures that Dutch stakeholders have access to the most insightful leaders and cutting edge technology, and that the knowledge sharing continues, as technology and innovation continually transforms how healthcare is delivered.
De HIMSS Dutch community heeft al meerdere studiereizen en delegaties naar de jaarlijkse HIMSS conferenties verzorgd. De programma’s zijn mede gecoördineerd door Nictiz, VMBI en Stichting Digitalezorg.nl en spitst zich toe op inhoud en netwerkmogelijkheden.
