Executive Connect 2.0 - Executive Fireside Chat and Auction Event

About the Event

The Minnesota HIMSS chapter is excited to present its second HIMSS Executive Connect event this time focusing on Healthcare Informatics and Cyber Security. Featuring key note speaker Dr. Bryan Jarabek, CMIO with M Health Fairview and a live Fireside Chat with Nursing Informatics leaders and Physicians based out of mid-west healthcare organizations.

The event will feature an executive auction in which participants will have the opportunity to bid on a 60-minute meeting with the featured panelists. This virtual 60-minute event will take place on August 5th, 2021, with the panelist participants providing a 6–8-minute overview of a major initiative. Below are a sample of possible topics of interest:

  • Healthcare Informatics perspective on the fast-paced cyber security world
  • How healthcare IT has changed post COVID-19
  • Key innovation of interest now and into the future






The Minnesota HIMSS chapter and its board of directors are continuing to grow the mid-west chapter. We are working hard to develop programs for the future of Healthcare IT and investing into scholarship programs to help chart the path for future leaders. We want to present opportunities for our network to learn more from each other.
