The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) invites all health information
professionals to join the celebration and be recognized during the 30th annual Health Information
Professionals (HIP) Week, March 24-30, 2019.
Health information management (HIM), an allied health profession, leads efforts to ensure the availability,
accuracy, integrity, and security of all data related to patient healthcare encounters. This helps achieve
better clinical and business decisions that enhance healthcare quality. HIM professionals work in multiple
settings, including hospitals, clinics, physician offices, government and health insurance agencies, and
other organizations. They play a key role in the effective management of health data to deliver quality
healthcare to the public.
HIP Week coincides with AHIMA’s Hill Day, where AHIMA members come together on Capitol Hill
to advance the health information profession. HIP Week is a great opportunity for professionals to
showcase the benefits of their profession, and collectively work to lead the way in health information.
Help spread our message with pride by participating in HIP Week!
