Ontario Health IT Conference in Toronto, sponsored by the HIMSS Ontario Chapter

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 1st annual Ontario Health IT Conference sponsored by HIMSS Ontario Chapter. It is because of your interest and participation that this inaugural event was a huge success! Over 500 health IT leaders were onsite on Thursday Oct 3, 2019 as attendees, presenters, and/or exhibitors. The day was rich with networking and education opportunities with 2 keynote sessions, 22 break-out sessions, and 60 vendors showcased.  A few photos from the day are available on the Ontario Health IT Conference website. We hope to build on this marked success and continue to sponsor this event in years to come!!   -  HIMSS Ontario Chapter Board
