Health Information

 

National Health Information and Technology Week

November 2011

Health information is a vital resource to you and the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who provide your treatment and care. It is the role of Health Information Management (HIM) professionals to ensure your health record is complete, accurate, and available when needed most. During the first week of November, we celebrate Health Information & Technology (HI&T) Week. This annual event recognizes the work of those professionals who manage patient health information. This year's theme is:

"Ensuring Health Information Integrity"

HIM professionals are responsible for the collection, storage, coding, processing, analysis, interpretation, application, privacy, and sharing of information for a wide range of purposes in healthcare settings. Today, HIM professionals are increasingly performing these tasks using emerging technology and helping healthcare professionals access the information they need to support clinical decision-making, research financial management, and personal health management.

HI&T Week is sponsored by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and the Canadian Health Information Management Association (CHIMA). For more information about the HIM profession, visit the AHIMA web site at www.ahima.org.
