As we look back over the past several months there has been substantial changes within AHIMA, along with the MdHIMA Board. AHIMA introduced the new vision of “A world where trusted information impacts health and healthcare by connecting people, systems, and ideas.” In the coming weeks, MdHIMA will update and ensure our vision is aligned with AHIMA.
The combined two day 2019 Annual meeting between MdHIMA and DcHIMA provided exceptional speakers, informative educational tracks, vendor exhibits and the always great pleasantries of networking and socializing with peers.
July 2019 Delegates attended the Leadership Symposium and September 2019 House of Delegates Meeting, both held in Chicago, IL. The sessions were collaborative, informative and thought provoking. A Delegates reports can be found in the newsletter.
All of the committees have been busy, from creating educational meetings; updating and posting events the various social media platforms; to ensuring MdHIMA contributed an item for the 2019 AHIMA silent auction activities. The list goes on and on.
