Clear Background Advocacy EmblemWelcome to GIC HIMSS!

We are a diverse group of experienced healthcare professionals working in greater Illinois. We work at hospitals, corporate health systems, consulting firms, vendor organizations, universities, and a wide variety of other organizations. Many of us are the decision makers in our organization. Our members range from CEOs, CIOs, and other senior executives to analysts and students. We have technical members and clinical members. The majority of GIC’s members have well over ten years of experience in the healthcare field.


As part of the FY14 HIMSS Chapter Level of Advocacy Awards, the GIC Chapter was awarded the Presidential Level of Advocacy Award. A HIMSS Chapter Level of Advocacy Award is presented to the Chapter as a direct result of their Chapter Advocate's leadership and commitment to health IT advocacy. A special thank you goes out to chapter member and former Advocacy HIE Chair Lauren Wiseman MSN, RN- BC at the Central Illinois Health Information Exchange and her team for all their hard work on the Chapter’s HIE Advocacy Day program.
