2016-2017 Kickoff ♦ New Committee

Introducing the Newest Committee for HIMSS SoCal Organization – Patient Engagement

We are very excited to announce a new HIMSS SoCal committee – Patient Engagement, chaired by Clark Kegley. The initial focus of the Patient Engagement Committee will be to develop a robust, effective program that engages patients and solicits feedback on engagement from the southern California community.  The committee developed a Patient Engagement focus group from within our active membership. The first program the committee will kick off is the Patient Experience Conference in San Diego on January 20th 2017 with keynote speaker Susan Taylor, the Executive Director of External Affairs for Scripps Health. Susan will be sharing a powerful patient story experience she had with father. This is a must see event!
