President’s Message

Dear NHHIMA Member,

Welcome to the NHHIMA chapter new year. It is my delight and honor to be serving as the President of NHHIMA for 2020-2021. I would like to take this time to welcome our new board members and say thanks to the ones who have service NHHIMA so diligently.

Our outgoing president, Jeff Butler RHIA, to whom I owe a great deal of thanks teaching me the ins and outs of leading the NHHIMA.

A special thank you to Angelique Sibulkin, RHIT, CCS-P for coordinating all our communication and letting our members know all the great things the NHHIMA is and has been working.

Also, a thank you to Minela Avdic, RHIA for putting together all the wonderful education programs that we have had this year.

And Kori Preble Boecker, M.Ed., RHIA, thank you finding all our new board members.

Please take the time to check out our new members of the board and I’d like to personally welcome you all:

  • Director of Communications:Sean McGrath
  • Director of Programs and Education:Susan Collins
  • Secretary/Treasurer:Suzanne Landry
  • Nominating Committee:Tammy Fitzpatrick.

We are looking for Volunteers for the following committees:

  • Programs and Education:Susan Collins
  • Calling all coders, we are looking for Coding round table peeps

The new campaign slogan from AHIMA for the year is “Health Information is Human Information”.  Look for more information in the coming months on this topic!

Looking ahead to 2021 we are continuing to plan to host the Tri-State Conference in May of 2021.  Despite having to be cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19, the conference retains a very strong education program agenda and has great vendor support. This conference is jointly hosted and supported by the Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire AHIMA chapters. NHHIMA is acting as the host chapter for this event and it will be held at Church Landing in Meredith, New Hampshire. We are hoping the status of Covid-19 will be such that we can hold this conference in-person!

I hope everyone stays healthy and let’s get this year of to a great start!

Please feel free to contact me by email, text or phone at robin@mrsnh.com or 603-236-9465.

Sincerely,

Robin Ingalls-Fitzgerald
