A cloud event tailor-made for healthcare pros? We know we made a lot of dreams come true with this forum. And we're on cloud nine about coming back to the HIMSS annual conference in Las Vegas!

Here at HIMSS, we've heard it from you, we've heard it from our HIMSS community, and we've seen it first hand: cloud migration is challenging. There's a lot to consider. And it's not something you want to mess up.

Learn from the folks who have experienced cloud migration missteps or security snafus. Hear how organizations have developed well-planned strategies to leverage the cloud to achieve business and clinical goals. We want you to succeed. And it's why we're here – to share knowledge, to share best practices, real-world case studies, and professional insights from the experts in the trenches who'll help you do your job well.

Join your peers at the HIMSS and Healthcare IT News 2nd annual Cloud Computing Forum at HIMSS18. Last year, the event filled up quickly, so be sure to register early to ensure a seat.
