Join Us In Celebrating The 29th Annual
Health Information Professionals Week!


With the increased awareness of better health care through quality data, it is only fitting to recognize the vital role that certified health information management (HIM) professionals’ play in providing accurate and reliable data to support patient care and overall organizational performance. While organizations must have an enterprise wide focus on data quality, CHIMA certified HIM professionals are recognized as subject matter experts in all aspects of the lifecycle of health information management.

To celebrate our contribution, this year’s HIP Week theme is: 

Better Health Care Demands Quality Data: HIM Professionals-Your Contribution Matters!

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

An array of promotional, educational materials, and suggested activities will be available over the next few weeks to help members plan for a successful 2018 HIP Week!

In the meantime, begin spreading awareness, on social media, around the HIM profession and celebrate your professions week!

  • Feel free to use the following hashtags in your social media posts:
    #CHIMAHIPW2018  #HIM  #BetterHealthCare  #DataQuality  #YourContributionMatters!
