Build Strong Connections at HIMSS Networking Events

It’s easy to spend your time exploring the exhibit hall and learning at panel sessions, but don’t forget to leave time for networking at HIMSS. Whether you want to connect with like-minded individuals, relate to other women in health IT, or find your next collaborator, attending a few networking events will enhance your experience.

After all, when will you have another opportunity to be surrounded by 40,000 of the best minds in health technology?

Check out what's on my radar:

  • Sip, Savor, and Connect: Coffee & Networking at HIMSS hosted by HIT Like a Girl Podcast. This event will connect emerging and established women in health IT in a smaller and low-stress setting to kick off the first full day of HIMSS on Tuesday, April 18th, 2023. Advanced registration is required.
  • Social Determinants of Health Sip & Learn hosted by HIMSS. With my background in community development, I believe it's essential that everyone takes the time to understand how a person's social location impacts their health. This event caps Wednesday, April 19th of HIMSS23.

Pro tip: Make sure to take food breaks and block some quiet time for yourself to avoid getting burnt out before the end of the week (I’ve made that mistake before)

Enhance Your Online Presence With Meaningful Content

As a marketer, I understand the importance of being searchable, especially if you want to become a thought leader in your industry.

Once you’ve made connections at all your networking events, it's important that you can easily be found online. LinkedIn, Twitter, or your company website are great channels to build your online presence. But what if I told you there’s an opportunity at HIMSS to add to that and help you grow as a thought leader?

Find Your Healthcare Niche

We all attend HIMSS because we are passionate about healthcare technology innovation, but is there a specific topic you love or want to be known for in the industry? 

HIMSS breaks down their sessions into the following categories:

  • Business
  • Data and Information
  • Employee Engagement and Retention
  • Organizational Governance
  • Personalized Care
  • Policy
  • Process & Operations
  • Technology

No matter what your niche is, make sure you are in the right place at the right time. Find out where important conversations are happening, and make plans to be there. By surrounding yourself with topics that you are interested in, any session can become a networking opportunity. 

You can search the HIMSS sessions, and filter by the topics listed above.

Pro tip: Participate in as many conversations and Q&As as possible, you never know who’s listening!
