It’s not like AHIMA (ahima.org) is a new kid on the block – their Association has been around for some time. It’s just that the recent spate of emails to us about their SmartBrief facility, and the depth of the info it conveys, make us wonder why we have not recognised its presence before.
In fact we did – it’s just that AHIMA itself has started to widen its reach, and is giving its bigger brother so to say, HIMSS – a clear run for its money.
At a time when HIMSS changes in key personnel over the past twelve months, has given it a more authoritarian look and feel and dare I say, less welcoming.
So here we are… AHIMA focusses on the technical stuff, coding, courses, helping to you to understand better your patient data. And they have their annual events too, and their frequent Seminars.
Sure, HIMSS has its global footprint – and we will be at HIMSS Helsinki in just a few months – but watch out for the increasing News briefs from AHIMA and go subscribe to their service.
