HIMSS Europe and HIMSS UK revamp online media platforms to reinforce commitment into sharing examples of best practice across the European and UK healthcare IT scene
[Berlin, Germany] HIMSS Europe and HIMSS UK are launching stand-alone platforms for two of its established online media brands, Insights and the British Journal of Healthcare Computing (BJ-HC).
The newly-launched online platform of Insights, which can be accessed here, aims to keep healthcare leaders up to date with the latest developments in the field and provide in-depth coverage on cutting edge topics in healthcare technology, with regular features and news online.
The website will help to support and supplement the well-established, quarterly print version of the title and is the official media partner for all HIMSS Europe events.
As an expanding digital-only platform, BJ-HC will focus solely on bringing you news from the UK’s health and care IT scene, tackling challenges and opportunities for decision makers, both from the National Health Service (NHS) and the private sector. BJ-HC is the official media partner for all events organised by HIMSS UK.
Sarah Bruce, Director of Media and Enterprise Marketing for HIMSS Europe and UK, said:
“HIMSS is completely unique in our ability to utilise our huge European network to provide up to date information and content for our audiences. The launch of these exciting new platforms reinforces our commitment and investment into promoting examples of good practice across the European health and care IT sector.
“As independent publications, Insights and the British Journal of Healthcare Computing will report on progress made in transforming healthcare through IT in the UK and Europe.”
