The COVID-19 crisis has made us all aware of several things that deserved so much more appreciation than they usually get - one of the most important among them being our own Health Information Management industry.
As AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE, rightly puts it, “The pandemic has shone a light on their (health information professionals’) contributions”.
So before proceeding any further, we would like to take a moment and express our immense gratitude and gratefulness to the amazing HIP staff at ECLAT and the thousands of health information professionals across the globe. We are beyond thankful for your incredible work and super proud of the impact you create that brings clients and patients the healthcare quality they deserve. We celebrate you!
Celebrating HIP Week 2020 as an
AHIMA-Recognized HIP Champion
Even though we couldn’t physically meet with our amazing healthcare peers across the country this year, we never had more reasons to celebrate the event.
Firstly, AHIMA has recognized ECLAT as a champion for the health information profession and our contributions to patient care quality - what an exciting news! It is an honor to be a recognized advocate for the incredible and invaluable healthcare allies. We take pride in the work our team carries forth day in and day out.
Secondly, the critical work put forth by HIPs is being recognized by the world like never before. The pandemic has clearly demonstrated the importance of every HIP - right from Chief Revenue Officers to medical records clerks, health information clerks, and coders. AHIMA has showcased the inspiring stories of these professionals and how they drive meaningful innovation on the HIP Week website.
The timing of the HIP Week has made the event even more special. Harris says “AHIMA20 is the place for health information professionals to access the education and resources they need, while engaging with their peers….Celebrating HIP Week at AHIMA20 is a natural fit.”
Placing consumers at the centre of their care has been a key focus at HIP Week 2020. We take this opportunity to urge you to sign the HIP week pledge and support consumer engagement and patients’ rights.
