30th annual Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week: thank you!

On behalf of the board of directors and staff, CHIMA would like to extend a sincere thank you to all members who participated in #HIPWeek19!  

Your support in celebrating HIP Week helps spotlight the thousands of health information management professionals who perform their duties masterfully throughout the year.

During this celebratory week, CHIMA members from the across the country honoured the HIM profession by spreading awareness about the vital role they play in providing accurate and reliable data to support patient care and overall organizational performance. Many members took advantage of the suggested activities, presentations, articles, videos, e-book, posters, and promotional items to help promote the celebrations.

Beyond highlighting the HIM profession, HIP Week is also a great way to reflect on one’s professional career — to look back on past successes, roads travelled, and professional growth, and to celebrate accomplishments!

CHIMA would like to extend a special thanks to the following members and organizations:
