Health Information Professionals Week Proclaims ‘Our Future Is Bright’ During 29th Annual Celebration

 HIP Week
The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) will honor and celebrate health information professionals during the 29th annual Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week March 18–24, 2018. This year’s theme is “Our Future Is Bright.”
“It’s a transformational time for healthcare, and health information is at the heart of this transformation,” said Lou Ann Wiedemann, MS, RHIA, CDIP, CHDA, FAHIMA, interim senior vice president, member services. “In the midst of all this change, positive opportunities are being created. Health information management professionals understand clinical and financial data as well as information governance and data management—all tools that can help reward value, lower cost, and make the healthcare experience better for patients. It is a great time to be in the HIM profession, and we believe our future is bright.”

HIP Week 2018 will coincide with AHIMA’s Advocacy Summit and Hill Day, events where AHIMA members receive education specific to advocacy and visit Capitol Hill to share the importance of advancing HIM. Information governance and privacy and security continue to be key issues for HIM professionals; AHIMA will continue to provide guidance to the healthcare industry and government leaders seeking expertise and counsel.
During HIP Week, health information professionals will engage in focused activities in their organizations and the community to raise awareness of the important work they perform. Some of the activities include lunch and learns, displays in facility lobbies and lunchrooms, tours for elected officials, community seminars, and local media coverage. Facilities may recognize the accomplishments of their HIM team during HIP Week. Follow the social media hashtag #HIPWEEK18 to see how organizations celebrate across the US.
