Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week

You’re invited to join the celebration and be recognized for your contributions to the HIM profession during the 30th annual HIP Week, March 24-30!

Health information is more than just data – it’s a shared language connecting front line caregivers to people. A language for telling the health stories of Canadians, stories that help Canadians trust in the care they receive.  The HIM profession plays a vital role in providing quality care to Canadians!

To celebrate the critical role our HIM professional’s play, this year’s HIP Week theme is It’s All in the Data – Quality Care through Storytelling.

During this professional celebratory week, help profile and raise awareness of the crucial and hands-on role HIM professionals play in data quality and information management.

An array of downloadable, promotional videos, PowerPoint presentation, posters, educational materials, and suggested activities will be made available to help members plan for a successful 2019 HIP Week!
