Speaker Proposals

HIMSS is accepting speaking proposals for the Cloud Computing Forum on March 5 at the HIMSS Annual Conference in Las Vegas.

The deadline to submit a proposal is 5 PM EST, Wednesday, Nov. 1.

For this event, we want healthcare provider and payer organizations to share their experiences with cloud computing. This conference is for healthcare leaders, the champions helping to guide their organizations into the future. We’ll address security and other common-held concerns around cloud computing, but we also want to dive deep and give attendees a clear view of how healthcare providers and payers have embraced the cloud to achieve strategic goals, increase their agility and become more capable of responding to market forces.

We are especially interested in healthcare organizations that have adopted a cloud-first strategy. How are you using the cloud to address chronic disease management, economic pressures, care innovation, cyber security, big data, and the rise of personalized medicine?

What We Want

Case studies and real-life solutions are a priority for the 200+ audience of healthcare provider IT, clinical, administrative, and security professionals.

Presentations must demonstrate ROI: Success stories supported by data. Lessons learned also make great sessions. Keep if real!

Areas of interest

Session topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Migrating data to the cloud
  • Negotiating with cloud vendors
  • Privacy & security
  • Identifying quick wins
  • Developing a cloud strategy
  • Deeping relationship with providers and patients
  • Cloud computing case studies: Enabling outcomes, benefits, and lessons learned.
  • Big data in the cloud
  • Data ownership
  • Hybrid solutions that combine cloud and onsite capability
  • And more


We accept proposals from healthcare payers and providers, government agencies and academic institutions ONLY. We do not accept proposals from healthcare vendors and consultants, unless made on behalf of a provider or payer customer.

Thank you for your interest in the Cloud Computing Forum. If your proposal matches our requirements, we will contact you.

If you have any questions, please contact Program Manager Mike Moran at or Program Coordinator Chris Hayden at
