The Leadership Symposium July 10th and 11th in Chicago was attended by WSHIMA Delegates Sally Beahan, President; Sheryl Rose, Past President; Cindy Kelly, Chief Delegate; Bill Thieleman, Delegate; Lynette Colis, Delegate and Tracy Stanley, Delegate.
The attendees from around the US reviewed the 2014 to 2017 AHIMA Strategic Plan.
This document is the foundation for the work to be done by AHIMA and each Component State Association (CSA) over the next few years. I encourage you to review the Strategic Plan by clicking here. (http://library.ahima.org/xpedio/groups/public/documents/ahima/bok1_050165.pdf)
AHIMA’s Strategic Plan includes an Environmental Scan, an analysis of HIM issues and trends expected to affect the future of healthcare. Trends included in that scan are:
- Business/Economic Climate
- Politics/Societal Values
- Other Key Trends
The identified trends are worth reading as they inform the objectives needed to uphold the Association’s direction.
WSHIMA Delegates will be attending the House of Delegates in New Orleans on September 27th. It is important that we hear from WSHIMA members to help us better understand your thoughts on the Strategic Plan. Please feel free to contact us with your comments via the WSHIMA website, Facebook or Twitter. We look forward to hearing from you.
