Patient ID Week, sponsored by the Patient ID Now coalition, of which AHIMA is a founding member, runs from May 9-13. AHIMA has provided a number of ways for you to participate this week.
Visit AHIMA’s Action Center, where you can participate in three campaigns this week on patient identification and matching:
- Tell Your Story about Patient Identification
- Email your Legislators and Ask them to Repeal Section 510 in the Labor-HHS Appropriations Bill
- Tweet your Support for Patient ID to your Members of Congress
Follow Patient ID Now’s Twitter Account (@PatientidN) and AHIMA’s social media accounts (@AHIMAResources, AHIMA Facebook, AHIMA LinkedIn) and engage with those social media posts about Patient ID Week. Make sure to use the #patientIDnow hashtag!
Sign up for the virtual congressional briefing: Congress’ Role in Protecting Patients by Improving Patient ID.
