As the profession moves into the era of “HIM Without Walls,” what does it mean to work in health information management? This question was the underlying theme of discussions during Sunday’s House of Delegates meeting, which organizers titled “A Successful House without Walls.”
The Tennessee, Florida, and Pennsylvania Health Information Management Associations took center stage at this year’s House of Delegates meeting as the top three finishers for this year’s AHIMA 2013 Core Service Achievement Award for Advocacy and Influence.
Members of the House of Delegates learned from the past, built on the present, and prepared for the future during Sunday’s meeting in Atlanta, GA.
Identifying trends, advocating for the HIM view, and mobilizing local voices are among the future directions explored by AHIMA’s House of Delegates during its 66th meeting Sunday in Chicago, IL. Delegates from across the country met to validate and prioritize trends to help guide AHIMA’s strategy, share ideas on effectively advocating for the HIM profession, and understand how state leaders and delegates can support national initiatives at the state level.
