AHIMA Launches Petition for National Voluntary Patient Safety Identifier

AHIMA has launched a petition to ask the White House to address the need for a national voluntary patient safety identifier by removing legislative language that has prevented open discussion between the government and others, including AHIMA, who are seeking a solution to this critical patient safety issue. The petition, available on, needs 100,000 signatures by April 19 to ensure a response from the Obama administration.

We need you to go to the website and sign the petition. Here's the link: Please sign TODAY and get your family and colleagues engaged. (Signers must be over 13 years of age with an email address.) To be successful in our strategy we need 100,000 signatures in the next 30 days.

PLEASE NOTE: The petition signature is a two-step process. A validation email is immediately sent from the petition website and must be acknowledged before the signature is finalized. The entire process is very quick but if you don't see the validation email check your spam filter; this second step must be completed for a valid signature.

For more information go to: You will find a tool kit, a video and research on why this is important! Please go to the website and sign the petition to start the conversation! AND, tell your friends and family!
