The first national HIMSS conference took place on April 1, 1962, at the Emerson Hotel in Baltimore.  It is appropriate the event began in those Camelot days, when people asked themselves not what can be done for them but what they can do for others.  The seed from which today’s HIMSS conference grew started with the thesis that “an organized exchange of experience among members and other interested parties could promote a better understanding of the principles underlying hospital management systems”.  Consider the thousands of insights, shared struggles, shared advice given and received over that half century of “organized exchanges of experience” that is the HIMSS Conference.
