Celebrating Health Information Professionals

Original story posted on: April 14, 2021

Dear Colleague,

Please join me in recognizing the outstanding work done every day by dedicated and compassionate Health Information Professionals (HIPs). We here at ICD10monitor, and Talk Ten Tuesdays extend our sincere appreciation to those healthcare workers who toil endlessly at their stations – either on the floor, bedside, or remotely, as so many operate these days.

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has declared that April 18 through April 24 is national Health Information Professionals Week.

Every day, in facilities ranging from small rural hospitals to large academic teaching facilities and health systems, these dedicated professionals are working to keep patient health information data accurate, secure, and most importantly, personal. Because when it’s personal, it’s relevant.

As part of our recognition of the importance of HIPs, please listen to HIP Voices, a podcast during which you’ll hear the stories of three dedicated professionals:
