Frequently Asked Questions

For 75 years, the NMHA Annual Meeting has been an important opportunity for the New Mexico hospital community—administrators, leadership, staff, policy-makers, clinicians, volunteers, regulatory agency personnel, academic researchers, teachers and trainers, solutions providers and more—to come together. That has not changed.
We’ll offer educational webinars, an exhibit hall, networking time, a poster session, conversation tools and recognition of our New Mexico hospitals that celebrates the Quest for Excellence in Quality and Patient Safety Awards, our Healthcare Heroes and our teamwork. NNMA’s 46 member hospitals are each unique and they each have important interests and mission elements in common. On October 8 and for a month afterward, we’ll bring together content and people to connect and strengthen this hospital community.
P.S. We’ve just missed you. Really missed you.
NMHAAll Together is open to the entire New Mexico healthcare community (Did you know we’re the second largest employment sector in the state!?).
If you are employed by, or volunteer at, one of our 46 New Mexico member hospitals, you ARE an NMHA member. Your organizational leadership invests in New Mexico Hospital Association advocacy efforts, educational and networking opportunities—a variety of programs that benefit the broader hospital community. Select the member rate and name your facility when you complete the registration form.
If you are not working at a member hospital, but are a collaborator, policy ally, provider, business partner or other hospital-involved, would-be attendee: Welcome. We’re glad you’re here. Please select our non-member rate and name your organization when you complete the registration form.
Real-time, virtual sessions, sponsor exhibits, chats and meetings begin at 8:00 a.m., Mountain Time, on Thursday, October 8, 2020. The full website will be available for 30 days after as well.
All you need is internet access from your computer, tablet or phone. Access to sessions, presentations, chatting with exhibitors and attendees, messaging friends and more is provided within the online conference platform.
Yes! You can watch and re-watch sessions on-demand, here on the site, until November 7, 2020.
No worries. If you registered, your login will allow full access to the site and on-demand viewing of all sessions until November 7, 2020. Our webinars will be content rich, so you can also re-watch recorded sessions.
Yes! We’re making documents, even posters from our Quest for Excellence storyboard session, downloadable and accessible through your internet browser. Sponsors can also share collateral from their exhibits through a virtual “swag bag.” Please keep in mind that some presentation slides and handouts may be accessible at a later date—we’ll make sure you get final versions. Use your post-event access to find the information that caught your attention, through November 7.
First, let’s ease your mind. As an attendee, all you need is internet access. All you need to do on event-day is visit a website on your computer, tablet or phone, login and look around. When you find something you’d like to see and do: Just click on or touch it. Our educational sessions will run one-at-a-time, as noted on the agenda, so there’s no confusion and no need to reserve another spot once you’ve registered.
Exhibits, posters and the Lounge will be available throughout the event. Messaging other attendees, setting a time to meet with an exhibitor or colleague, asking a question—all of these features will work within the event website and function similarly to email, social media and other communication methods you already know how to use. If you have more questions before October 8, please email NMHA staff, Andrea Lohse or Kandace Northness
On October 8, we’ll have some tech help from our vFAIRS partners. Please contact
