Inside this Issue:

Valuable Resources Provided by the 2020-21 PHIMA Student Liaisons

Submitted by:    Michele Maier, MHMS, RHIA, CCS

PHIMA 2nd Year Director

Over the past few months, our fabulous student liaisons have helped PHIMA develop some infographics about the wonderful world of HIM.  Isn't collaboration great?  Angela and Jordan both brought different perspectives and skills that blended together to allow this project to bloom into these great infographics.
I know what you are all thinking: What is an infographic?  Well, it is collection of images, charts, and some text that gives an easy-to-understand overview of a topic.  Isn't that exactly what we need to help explain HIM to the rest of the world?
Angela and Jordan came to the position of Student Liaisons having found their HIM programs via different routes and they expressed how much they would have loved some easy ways to understand what HIM really was and what all they could do in an HIM career.  Won't we all? 
When you have a moment, take a look at the PHIMA website to view these infographics.  I wish these had been around when I was a student and even when trying to describe what I do or what HIM really means.  Don't forget to use these or refer others (such as students) to them as you interact with others!
Jordan and Angela both expressed that the opportunity to work on a project with a team comprised of different perspectives and experiences was beneficial.  In addition, for anyone thinking about suggesting someone to apply to be a Student Liaison (which will be coming up soon - continue to check your PHIMA e-Alerts) that depending on the project such as this one, the project are great additions to their resume or portfolio.
Therefore, on behalf of PHIMA, I would like to express to Jordan and Angela our heartfelt thanks for completing this project.  This project will benefit PHIMA and its members well into the future.
