HIM 2020 Conference
Due to the COVID-19’s uncertain trajectory, travel restrictions, and the overall safety of attendees, the Canadian Health Information Management Association (CHIMA) has decided to postpone the HIM 2020 Conference to 2021. The new dates are October 5–6, 2021.
The conference will still be taking place in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the same venues. The RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg, Delta Hotel Winnipeg, and Canadian Museum for Human Rights have been very understanding of the current situation. Their ability to change these dates is greatly appreciated.
CHIMA is looking forward to hosting the HIM 2021 Conference and leveraging the theme, format, and speakers that have been secured.
Health Information Professionals Week 2020
CHIMA is excited to announce this awareness week will now take place from October 5–9, 2020. We are calling it HIP Week Live, because it will be taking on a new digital format this year. There will be a compilation of keynote speakers, recorded sessions, and networking opportunities for members. The new online platform will be leveraged to make this content readily available for membership.
Ticket sales for HIP Week Live 2020 will be made available soon. With each ticket sold there will be a discount code offered on the purchase of a HIM 2021 Conference ticket.
