I would like to begin by saying thank you to the PHIMA Board, committee chairs and volunteers who made this past year such a success.
The PHIMA Board, in alignment with AHIMA, continued to work on the strategic initiatives with assigned target dates and progress for the following: Lead in Informatics And Analytics, Champion Information Governance, Create Pathways For Health Information Professionals In Emerging Roles and Connect Consumer To Their Health Information. In addition to education on these initiatives at the Annual Conference, the Fall Conference provided a specific focus on Information Governance.
A few highlights from this year was the completion of the legal manual, securing a new accounting firm, which streamlined all of our accounting needs and saved PHIMA dollars. PHIMA Delegate and Penn College HIM Program Coordinator, Dan Christopher along with his HIA Club scanned 80 years of archives, which was over 100 work hours and we celebrated PHIMA 80th year as an organization!
Thank you to the members for allowing me the opportunity to serve!
