Frequently Asked Questions

In order to respect the health and well-being of the health information and technology community, we have decided to hold this conference digitally. Many of our attendees are working on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are still many unknowns about our ability to travel and congregate in groups in the coming months. This digital event will enable all of us to still share and learn from one another with valuable interactive content.

Each day, we will present a keynote session and an education track with 3–4 interactive sessions on topics, including AI and innovation, critical care, data privacy and digital maturity. See more detail on our themes and topics.

Now more than ever, we recognize the needs of our constituents to continue learning and to earn credit towards these efforts for a variety of certifications. In addition to CAHIMS and CPHIMS credits, we are working with several governing bodies to accredit this event. We will post more information as it becomes available.

Yes, we will have a virtual 3-D exhibit hall, so you can still find the solutions you need to support your needs. Live chat will be available for you to interact and engage directly with company representatives.
