Welcome to FHIMA
The Florida Health Information Management Association (FHIMA) is a component state association of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
We support and promote health information management professionals by advancing best practices through education, technology, professional development, leadership, advocacy, and communication.
Our nation’s healthcare system is experiencing a period of transformative change in which health information management professionals must continue to redefine and rebrand ourselves in order to thrive and embrace future career opportunities.
Ever mindful of this reality, the “CrossFit Your Career: Forging Elite HIM Fitness” theme and logo was created with each of you in mind.
- The red circle represents the weight lifting mat and represents when you’ve decided to step up and onto the mat to begin your training, coursework and apprenticeships.
- The barbell indicates that you’ve completed your education, training and apprenticeships, and now have the barbell in your hands.
- The more individual weights you add on to each end of the barbell, represent the more degrees, credentials and certifications you hold.
- And the heavier the weight, the more years of experience you have in that domain.
The great thing about this graphic image is that as you travel throughout your career, you can take weights on and off your barbell as needed, and you can rest between repetitions… so you too can begin to transform and “CrossFit” your career at any time, and at any age and at any stage.
