Message from the President

Dear Colleagues,

I am so happy to have the honor of serving as the President of NHHIMA.  A few weeks ago, I went to the AHIMA Leadership Symposium in Chicago.  There we learned of some of the strategic plans for the national association.  They have renewed the association Mission and Vision.

  • AHIMA’s Mission:  Empowering people to impact health
  • AHIMA’s Vision:  A world where trusted information transforms health and healthcare by connecting people, systems and ideas.

This shift is part of the overall strategic plan to bring HIM as a profession to a state of renewal. 

Wylecia Wiggs Harris, AHIMA CEO and Val Watzlaf, AHIMA President conducted a conversational discussion on the future of HIM and their commitment to AHIMA and all of the members.  It was quite powerful and we have suggested that a similar conversation be recorded and distributed to the members on the website and social media.  In addition, there was a guest speaker, Jan Bazow who spoke on Transformational Leadership….click here to read more

Mentoring

NHHIMA Mentoring Program

The NHHIMA Board members collectively have years of experience in a variety of healthcare settings, developing a vast amount of knowledge and a number of networking contacts throughout those years. Whether you are new to the Health Information Management (HIM) field or if you have been in the field awhile and want to learn more about NHHIMA and AHIMA you are encouraged and invited to actively seek the advice and experiential knowledge of our Board members.

Volunteerism is an important means to develop your network of HIM contacts. Partner with a Board member and offer your knowledge by participating on a committee such as Program and Education or learn about the roles of each Board member.

Consider being a candidate for a Board position now or when you have attained your AHIMA credentials.  You are instrumental in leading the HIM profession into the future.
