HIMSS Opens European Office in Brussels, Belgium

HIMSS EMEAThe new HIMSS initiative is focused on bringing together healthcare IT professionals in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, or EMEA, who share the common goal of improving the delivery of healthcare through information technology and management systems.

Mr Strübin (HIMSS EMEA Executive Director) said: "The new office in Brussels will act as a hub to better connect health IT professionals throughout the region in order to advance the field and the delivery of healthcare together. Working with our counterparts at HIMSS North America, our staff will customise HIMSS' services for the EMEA region and develop new ones specifically for the region, with education and networking at the core."

HIMSS has been working with a number of partners and other organisations on the World of Health IT (WHIT) Conference & Exhibition.

Following this inaugural and annual WHIT event, planning will begin for the 2007 World of Health IT, which will be held in Vienna, Austria.

"HIMSS is pleased to announce its expansion into this region to move forward the adoption of interoperable EHRs across the globe," said H. Stephen Lieber, HIMSS CEO/President.

"Our members and all of us at HIMSS welcome the opportunity to work with the Brussels staff as the Society expands its educational and membership outreach in Europe, the Middle East and Africa."
