HIMSS D-A-CH Community

The community for our German-speaking members, partners and delegates was launched in 2016. Predominately made up of healthcare IT stakeholders from Austria, Germany and Switzerland, it provides an opportunity for you to network and share information and knowledge with other German speakers and to join your country’s delegations at the main HIMSS events of the healthcare IT year, many of which have special German-speaking programmes.

‘D-A-CH’, of course, stands for Deutschland (Germany), Austria and Switzerland (‘CH’ being an abbreviation for Confoederatio Helvetica, Latin for ‘Swiss Confederation’).
