A privacy awareness message from your local chapter chair
The safeguarding of private information (PI) and private health information (PHI) have never been more important, especially as we embark on the second year of a global pandemic. This makes Privacy Awareness Week, May 10-14, a key event in 2021 for health information professionals.
CHIMA will host multiple presentations in May to help members stay informed and up to date on privacy issues at both provincial and national levels.
Another helpful resource: the 5-part educational series, Emerging Privacy Management Practices in Health Care presented by Jean L. Eaton, CHIM.
I hope everyone enjoys spring and, if you live in New Brunswick, have minimal issues during our flood season—fingers crossed!
David Allen, CHIM
The NB chapter is an integral part of the HIM community, bringing continuing education, networking events and activities, professional development support, and communication services to CHIMA members in New Brunswick.
The chapter is one of eight across the country. It’s led by a chapter committee consisting of volunteer members, including HIM professionals holding a professional designation from the Canadian College of Health Information Management or those actively working to join it, and reports to Nancy Haugen, Chair of the Chapter Advisory Council.
