The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) will honor and celebrate health information professionals during the 32nd annual Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week, April 18 to 24, 2021. This year’s theme is “Keeping Health Information Human.”
“Health Information professionals are trusted by patients and providers alike with the most sensitive data that exists about a person, while making sure it’s available where and when it’s needed,” said AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE. “The commitment of health information professionals to keep patient health information reliable and protected at all times is critical. I am excited to celebrate their work to keep health information human.”
During HIP Week, health information professionals engage in focused activities at their health care organizations and in their communities to raise awareness of their important work. In addition, health systems recognize the accomplishments of their health information team during HIP Week.
