CSHIMS Debuts at HIMSS 2012 Conference
37,000 conference goers had an opportunity to be introduced to the Certified Specialist in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CSHIMS) in February 2012. The Health Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) christened the new entry level health IT certification and welcomed it into the industry. Three information sessions, a Career Center presentation, and a place of honor at the HIMSS Communities Open House ensured HIMSS conference participants had a chance to acquaint themselves with the CSHIMS, project staff, and collaborators. The four day event, held in Las Vegas this year, is the largest education and exhibition in the health IT industry.
