Dear Colleagues,

It is an honor to be the 2017-2018 President of NHHIMA, an engaged professional organization which consistently influences and shapes the management of health information.

As our world and our profession changes we all need to stay relevant and grow. This year’s Board members will represent NH on a local as well as on a national level. Together we will continue to be your voice and resource.

As the year progresses regularly check into our website for updates on the work the Board is doing, dates for the various meetings being planned as well as any other HIM hot topics.

One item on the agenda for the upcoming year is for NHHIMA to participate in discussions about the planning and viability of putting together a 6 State Meeting. As you can imagine this is no small undertaking. There is a lot of work to make it happen but the end results can be great when we work collaboratively.   More to come on the status of this potential event.

The NHHIMA Board is eager to work with of you. We encourage participation and welcome input from our members. We will be reaching out to individuals over the next year to increase membership engagement and hope that when called upon you will consider the professionally gratifying opportunity to work with your fellow colleagues.

Here’s to a great year ahead!



Allison M. Bidgood, RHIA
NHHIMA President 2017-2018
