CNN President’s Message

Lauren Houseal, RHIA

As we close out the Summer of 2013, we are all seeing changings throughout our organizations as well as within our HIM field.  Whether you are engaged in an Electronic Health Record implementation, preparation for ICD-10 or attesting for Meaningful Use, there is much to be done and even more to learn.  The CPHIMA board is looking for ways to provide you with additional education and to spark discussion among your peers in the region.  We hope to be able to bring you exciting topics that match some of the work you are engaged with or possibly give you an idea of something you can start. 

With the return of fall, I am happy to usher us into another fiscal year for the Central Pennsylvania Health Information Management Association.  While the board has been at work since July 1st, many of you renew your participation in the association with the first educational session in September.

The dates for upcoming educational sessions have been set, so mark your calendars now. By the time you receive this message, the September Educational Session on Friday, September 20th will be going on.  The next session will be on Friday, December 20, 2013 at The Hotel Hershey followed by sessions on Friday, March 21, 2014 and Friday, June 20, 2014, both locations to be determined.  In addition to discussing ICD-10, topics we are looking to discuss during this fiscal year are Transition of Care, Personal Health Record, the Changing HIM Role and Release of Information.

I am looking forward to leading our association this year and hope that together we can accomplish some great things! Stay tuned for continued updates from CPHIMA, as well as PHIMA and AHIMA.  If you have thoughts or suggestions as to how CPHIMA can enhance what is offered to you, please let me know.
