Scholarship Opportunity to participate in NHS Digital/US Health Data Analyst Exchange Program

The HIMSS Foundation in coordination with the HHS Office of the Chief Technology Officer, and the United Kingdom’s (UK) NHS Digital has created an exchange program. The HIMSS Foundation will select up to six health informaticists/data scientists/data strategists working at the state and local public health to travel to the UK. Each of the selected participants will receive a scholarship for travel to collaborate with NHS officials and lend analytical insight and identify novel approaches relating to health data science projects that could set the stage successful outcomes in addressing health imperatives and the determinants of health.

The aim of the exchange is a 10-day, multi-site visit, including two days for travel and time for orientation from August 27 to September 5, 2019. The visit will conclude with a presentation at the NHS Expo in Manchester, United Kingdom.
