APHSA is now accepting proposals from state and local health and human services agencies for the Information Technology Solutions Management for Human Services (ISM) Annual Conference, September 26-29, 2021.

At this time, ISM is only accepting proposals from state and local agencies and community-based organizations who deliver important programs and services through innovative solutions.

Submissions are encouraged in the following topic areas:

Data, Security, Cloud, AI, System Modernization, Integration & Interoperability, Human Centered Design, Social Concerns, Social Determinants of Health & Well-Being, Procurement and Contract Management, Performance Management, COVID-19 Learnings, Workforce Well-Being, As a Service, Low Code/No Code, Innovation. 


Sponsored Sessions: Platinum sponsors who deferred to 2021 have received an email from Show Management to submit their session idea and will be given priority for sponsored sessions. No other private sector submissions will be reviewed.
