Health Information Professionals Week is March 25 - 31

March 26, 2012

Health Information Professionals Week is a showcase for the thousands of health information management professionals who perform their duties masterfully throughout the year. The American Health Information Management Association is honored to provide support, representation, and training to HIM professionals for these valuable contributions to the health care industry.

Managing health information is vital as new technology, funding, and policies continue to evolve. Because of the numerous complexities within the current health care landscape (for example, meaningful use, ICD-10, regional extension centers, privacy and security, health information exchange, and quality measures), the training and skill-sets of health information professionals are required for the efficient organization and management of health information. It is because of these professionals that the health care industry will continue to grow and advance in patient care and safety.

“Join us March 25–31 in honoring students who have selected this field as well as the professionals who are managing health information for life,” said Patricia A. Sherman, program coordinator for health information technology at St. Louis Community College – Forest Park.
