Become A Sponsor

North Carolina Chapter Sponsorship Program

Become a chapter sponsor and showcase your products and services to providers throughout the state of North Carolina. NC HIMSS works to shape the healthcare industry through encouraging the use of technology and promoting public policies that will improve healthcare delivery.

The North Carolina Chapt­er of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (NC HIMSS) is a volunteer organization whose primary goals are to develop educational and regional networking programs and provide statewide leadership for the advancement and management of healthcare information and technology.

The North Carolina Chapter is a diverse group of 1,700+ healthcare IT professionals from across the state. Chapter members work at hospitals, corporate health systems, consulting firms, vendor organizations, universities, and a wide variety of other organizations. Our members range from senior executives to analysts and students, so sponsorship provides you with exposure to high-level decision makers throughout the state. We have both technical members as well as clinical members.

There are various forms of sponsorship for our events with increased benefits as the value of sponsorship increases. Your sponsorship helps NC HIMSS offer valuable educational programming at a very affordable price and will benefit your business through exposure to our session attendees. NC HIMSS is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization.

Contact McRay Simmons  (mcray.simmons@zones.com), Greg Foster (greg.foster@centricconsulting.com) or fill out the sponsorship form.
