History of ѻý

In 2006, a select group of Lifetime Members came together to tell the legacy of ѻý from its inception as the Hospital Management Systems Society in 1961. The group became known as the ѻý Legacy Workgroup. Their work serves as the anchor to a living history of the organization with the potential to add new information about ѻý's evolution, activities, initiatives, and achievements. The Legacy Workgroup created this document to pass on our history to future members, audiences, and leaders of ѻý. It encompasses our organization's story from 1961-2006.
