Divurgent Signature Drive Raises $5,000 for Children’s Hospital of New Orleans during HIMSS 2013 Conference

Virginia Beach, VA. March 15th, 2013 – With the a little help from our 500+ closest friends, Divurgent, a nationally recognized healthcare IT consulting firm, was able to raise $5,000 to donate to the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans.

Held in New Orleans, this year’s HIMSS conference (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) is the largest healthcare IT event in the industry, bringing in over 34,000 attendees to the area.

As first time exhibitors and in an effort to spread Divurgent’s community commitment, we displayed a five-foot thermometer in our booth and asked attendees to contribute only their signature as a donation to our “Signature Drive”. Our goal was to reach 500 signatures and after 2 days we succeeded!

“It is our sincere pleasure to be able to support the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans. As a consulting firm providing services across the country, our ‘community’ is wherever we are. New Orleans did an incredible job at hosting the largest and most successful HIMSS to date; to be able to give back in some way on behalf of all of those who participated in our signature drive is an honor,” stated Mary Sirois, Principal of Divurgent’s Clinical Transformation Practice.

We are looking forward to another successful event during the HIMSS 2014 conference. See you in Orlando!
