This year, PHIMA is pleased to welcome two Student Liaisons who are working, in conjunction with the Board, on special projects.
Kathleen Baumer is a current HIM student at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. In addition to her studies, she is serving as President of the Penn College Health Information Association Club. She enjoys the responsibility and the hard work that go along with being in a leadership position. After graduation, Kathleen hopes to work in the central PA region.
Kathleen is working with the Technology Chair of PHIMA to create a Social Media Education Station for our membership at the PHIMA Annual Meeting in May, 2018. In addition, Kathleen hopes to create Social Media Education clips for the PHIMA website.
Susan LaBoy, RHIT is currently working in the long-term care setting in Chester County. She is also enrolled in the online HIM Program through Rasmussen College, working towards her Bachelor’s degree and RHIA. Susan is excited to serve PHIMA, to gain more knowledge of the HIM industry and to network with HIM professionals.
Susan is working with our Community Education Chair to develop Consumer Education materials that will be available for use by the Board or any PHIMA member to educate the community on patient rights, patient portals and other valuable aspects of HIM.
Thank you, Susan and Kathleen, for your commitment to the HIM Profession.
