It’s that time of year….I’m all about delivering a quality Government Open Source Conference in Portland in just a few weeks.
Today I’m pretty thrilled that GOSCON has been approved by the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) for up to 4.5 contact hours of continuing education credit towards renewal of the CPHIMS credential.
Sessions approved for credit include:
- Executive Panel: Macro Trends Set the Stage for Open Source in Public Health
- Applying Open Source Methodologies to Build Public Health Software Collaboratively
- Health Atlas Ireland: Integrating data sets, GIS, statistics for health service planning, epidemiology, and incident management.
- Transitioning from Proprietary to Open Source Software: Issues and Lessons Learned through OpenELIS
GOSCON staff and volunteers have put a great deal of effort in putting together a fantastic track focusing on Open Public Health IT and we’re honored to be able to bring this extra value to our professional health care IT attendees.
