Become a Sponsor

    The Greater Kansas City HIMSS Chapter would like to thank all our Chapter Sponsors for their generous support. Sponsors help underwrite our events keeping member attendance costs low.

    CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

    The Greater Kansas City HIMSS Chapter is a diverse group of experienced healthcare professionals working throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan, Western Missouri, and Eastern Kansas areas. We have over 700 members who work at hospitals, corporate health systems, consulting firms, vendor organizations, universities, and a variety of other organizations. Many of us are the decision makers in our organizations. Our members range from senior executives to analysts and students. We have technical members and clinical members. Chapter member contact information is confidential.

    What is our purpose?

    • To plan and conduct educational programs that promotes an understanding of healthcare information and management systems, processes, and technologies.

    • To provide members opportunities to share ideas and exchange experiences in the field of healthcare information and management systems through meetings and networking events.

    • To assist members of this Chapter and others in developing their knowledge, increasing their effectiveness, and maintaining high-quality standards of performance through continuing education.

    • To give the vendor community in the Kansas City metro area the opportunity to become directly involved with the Chapter at an organizational level. The Chapter recognizes the critical link that exists between the provider organizations and the vendors they select that help make them successful.


    Heart of America HIMSS appreciates the contributions of sponsors from the healthcare community to help defray the
    cost of the chapter’s programs. We have implemented a flexible sponsorship program to allow for companies and/or
    organizations to align with their marketing goals. The various levels offer different benefits that improve the awareness
    of our sponsors and in turn provide a benefit to the community of healthcare information management and technology.

    *Partner events are not included in the allowable chapter event sponsorship opportunities. Partner events include
    national, statewide, or co-hosted events beyond the customary HOAHIMSS chapter membership catchment. For these
    events, all hosts must accept sponsorship applications and agree on event specific sponsor cost. However, HOAHIMSS
    will continue to prioritize these opportunities by Sponsorship level.
