The need for reliable and secure health information has become increasingly more important as healthcare organizations continue to face and grapple with some of the biggest changes in the industry and as patient engagement becomes more critical. The 88th AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, October 15–19, 2016, in Baltimore, MD, will explore the many ways in which health information professionals must persistently think big to launch our future and the future or our organizations.
Healthcare professionals will gather at the AHIMA Convention for interactive presentations, panel discussions and open forums to discuss how information should be governed for healthcare purposes. Today’s healthcare system requires the use of information in for many purposes: to inform decisions on patient treatment plans, staffing levels, quality reporting, reimbursement, financial planning, and population health management. Information is shared not only with a healthcare system, but now also across the healthcare eco-system and with patients.
Plan to attend this year’s event and join with other healthcare leaders, health information professionals and healthcare stakeholders from every segment of healthcare to get industry updates, learn best practices, share innovative ideas, gain insights from lessons learned, and discuss how health information is shaping the future of healthcare. Additionally, the exhibit hall will feature new and exciting innovative technology solutions to help you advance your organization and gain a competitive advantage.
