Hello WSHIMA Members,
Last month myself, Judi Hofman (President-Elect) and our three Delegates (Melody Draper-Hnatovic, Jill Burrington-Brown and Carrie Kaelin) had the chance to attend the AHIMA House of Delegates (HOD) meeting in Chicago as your representatives for Washington. AHIMA’s CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris gave a very impactful and forward thinking report to the delegates. She explained what position AHIMA is currently in and where she would like to see AHIMA grow. Of note this year there were four action forums for the delegates to review, discuss in breakout sessions, and develop recommendations (see the attached HOD summary). AHIMA also created a Governance Task Force charged with reviewing and transforming the governance of AHIMA. Please see the attached 2019 House of Delegates Summary and the Governance Task Force Charter for more details.
Until we meet again, take care.
