Keeping Health Information Human
This event is part of MxCC's celebrations of Health Information Professionals Week.
During HIP Week, health information professionals engage in focused activities at their healthcare organizations and in their communities to raise awareness of their important work. In addition, health systems recognize the accomplishments of their health information team during HIP Week.
Visit the hipweek.org website to explore first-hand accounts of how health information professionals impact the healthcare ecosystem and patient care. The website also features thought leadership pieces on advancing patient care and it recognizes the professionals and the organizations who support our goal of keeping health information human.
“Health Information professionals are trusted by patients and providers alike with the most sensitive data that exists about a person, while making sure it’s available where and when it’s needed,” said AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE. “The commitment of health information professionals to keep patient health information reliable and protected at all times is critical. I am excited to celebrate their work to keep health information human.”
