Welcome to HISA's Special Interest Group Portal
One of HISA's strategic priorities is to create and foster communities of interest via which the contributions of health information and technologies to healthcare improvement are advocated, designed and where possible, facilitated.
HISA has 13 special interest groups (SIGs). Each SIG is run by a committed group of volunteers and some are run by a single individual.
These passionate people give HISA members avenues to network and participate in health informatics topics of particular significance and interest. SIGs are governed by the HISA Constitution, policies and procedures and derive support from the HISA office for their activities.
HISA members are able to become members of as many SIGs as they choose. If you would like to join one of our SIGs, please login and adjust your preferences online.
HISA members are welcome to suggest new special interest groups they are interested in leading. Please contact HISA to discuss.
