The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) on Thursday canceled its global health conference. HIMSS organizers said the 2020 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition was called off due to the coronavirus outbreak and the “unacceptable risk to bring so many thousands of people together in Orlando next week.” Organizers made the decision following recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

It’s the first time in 58 years that the conference has been canceled.
