WVHIMA Message from the President


Dear CSA Members,
I hope everyone has had a fun and safe summer!
As promised, we are holding a 2022 WVHIMA Virtual Annual Convention. Details of this educational and networking event are located under the Annual Convention Chair Update within this full CSA update. 

Additionally, we are planning to hold the 2023 WVHIMA Annual Convention in the Spring.  It will be an in-person meeting, and the tentative location is set for The Greenbrier “America’s Resort” located in White Sulphur Springs, WV.  Additional details regarding convention dates, special room rates and travel recommendations will be communicated as soon as possible.  The 2023 WVHIMA Annual Convention’s theme will be “HIM Reunion” to celebrate our colleagues and friends being together in-person under one roof.
I also want to share an educational opportunity I participated in this year. I attended the 72nd NCHIMA Annual Convention in Concord, NC in June 2022.  It was a very informational and well-coordinated in-person meeting.  I took lots of notes and I gathered many great ideas for our in-person meeting next year.  Below were a few of their educational offerings.
  • Value-Based Care
  • Remote Working Risks and Opportunities
  • Importance of Networking
  • Future Proofing for Release of Information
  • HIPAA and the 4th Amendment
  • Preparing for the RHIT/RHIA Exam
I welcome any ideas you may have for the 2023 WVHIMA Annual Convention.  Please email your ideas to  
Thank you for your continued support and participation in the WVHIMA CSA.
Best Regards, 
Nelson Liston, RHIT
2022-2023 WVHIMA President
