CHIME members who attend the CHIME HIMSS CIO Forum in Orlando, Fla., still have an opportunity to sign up for CHIME Foundation Focus Groups. Members can earn up to $2,400 in honorariums, which easily offsets the CIO Forum registration fee. See our honorarium chart below to see how it works.
While seating lasts, CHIME members have the option to attend up to 13 CHIME Foundation Focus Groups on Feb. 12-14. Attendees can earn 1.5 CEUs for every focus group attended. On Feb. 12 (Tuesday) and Feb. 13 (Wednesday), there will be five sessions, each lasting 90 minutes. On Feb. 14 (Thursday), there will be three sessions, with the last one starting at noon. Members do not need to register for HIMSS to participate in focus groups.
All sessions will be in the Hyatt Regency Orlando, the same facility where the CHIME HIMSS CIO Forum will be held Feb. 10-11. Look for assigned rooms on the Convention Level. Be sure to schedule ample time to return from HIMSS, if you plan to drop by there before a focus group session.
The CHIME team will be present to help if you need anything. Breaks, lunch and refreshments will be served throughout the day on the Convention Level. You can mingle with colleagues between sessions in the CIO Lounge area, where there will be free wi-fi.
Honorarium earnings can be applied to CHIME membership dues or be paid by a personal check. Members also can donate honorariums to the Education Foundation to provide scholarships for healthcare IT executives to attend CHIME educational and professional development events, or to the CHIME Opioid Task Force, which launched a fundraising campaign to support the CHIME Opioid Health IT Action Center.
If you haven’t registered for the CHIME HIMSS CIO Forum, there is still time. Go here to register. Register for focus groups here. (Sign in required.) If you have any questions about focus groups, please email CHIME Foundation team member Arika Lycan at [email protected] or call 734-665-0000.
