President's Message

By Donna Coomes, MBA, RHIA, CHPS, CCS, CHC, CPHQ

Congratulations! Transition to ICD-10 is completed and undoubtedly the Health Information Management professionals served a huge role in the success.

I hope you are as excited about finally hearing the dates for the two educational workshops that Your THIMA board has been focused on to ensure that our members have access to relevant and timely education opportunities. In last week’s THIMA eNews we shared that dates of the two upcoming educational offerings that THIMA is collaborating with AHIMA to provide.

Have you been considering improving your skills in data analytics or becoming a certified health data analyst (CHDA)? If so, you may want to attend the two day CHDA and exam prep class to be held in Nashville on January 27 and 28th. Then on February 12th THIMA in conjunction with AHIMA will be offering a one day Information Governance (IG) boot camp in Nashville! I hope many of our members will be able to take advantage of one or both of these awesome educational opportunities. For information about cost, location, etc. for these educational opportunities visit the THIMA website at www.THIMA.org.

Less than four months to go until our THIMA 66th Annual Meeting to be held in Franklin, Tennessee on March 9- 11th! But there is still time for you to nominate candidates for the THIMA board and/or submit nominations for the THIMA Awards. The nomination submission process is easy and all online at the www.THIMA.org.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday!
