What is Organizational Affiliate?
Organizational Affiliate is a HIMSS program designed for healthcare provider organizations and other organizations directly allied with healthcare delivery. It combines HIMSS membership, event registration and online learning into a single benefits package. If you're a staff member with an Organizational Affiliate, you may be eligible for complimentary HIMSS membership, event registration, and access to the eLearning Academy. If you are unsure whether your organization is an Organizational Affiliate, check the Organizational Affiliate Directory
and contact a staff member in Healthcare Organizational Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I have access to the eLearning Academy?
All HIMSS members automatically receive access to the eLearning Academy. Login using the same user ID and password you selected when completing the member sign-up process. If you encounter an issue, please contact a Distance Education staff member at email@example.com
What is a Virtual Seat?
Organizational Affiliates have a specified number of members who may be assigned a Virtual Seat. A Virtual Seat is an additional level of benefit that provides a learner with complimentary access to all Sessions in the eLearning Academy. This benefit only applies to Sessions, not Online Courses; however, there are over 700 archived Sessions recorded from various HIMSS events. With a Virtual Seat, you simply add an item to your cart and complete a zero-dollar purchase at checkout.
Note: Virtual Seats must be assigned by your organization. Please contact a staff member in Healthcare Organizational Services firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Virtual Seat.
