HIMSS Career Services to Focus on Veterans

HIMSS will launch a program aimed at introducing military veterans to " future careers in the health IT industry." The program, which was government funded, will be located on the exhibit floor at HIMSS14. Any military veterans that might be interested in the health IT industry need only get themselves down to the HIMSS conference, pay $575 for a single day conference pass, and then proceed to the “A Hero’s Welcome to Health IT” booth. Once there, they’ll meet other veterans that are working in health IT that will be able to answer questions for them, and they’ll learn about HIMSS entry-level certification exams.
