A note from FHIMA President Cortnie R. Simmons, MHA, RHIA, CCS, CDIP, PMP
I am so excited about the 2018 FHIMA Annual Convention July 29 – August 1 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. Our theme this year is Step into NEW HIM Dimensions. This theme is important as we continue to prepare ourselves for the continuous transformation and changes of this great profession. FHIMA continues to work hard to support and promote health information management professionals by advancing best practices through education, technology, professional development, leadership, advocacy, and communication. We strive to continuously focus on our vision to be the recognized leader in Health Information Management for the state of Florida. Your support in registering for the 2018 Convention shows that you are dedicated to continuing to Step into NEW HIM Dimensions with FHIMA and support our mission and vision.
Along with supporting you as HIM professionals we wanted to also create an opportunity to give back to the community. FHIMA would like to donate gently used professional shoes to Dress for Success as part of this year’s convention. There are many people starting new careers and striving to step into new professional dimensions. We are asking for your support! Join me and please bring 1-2 pairs of closed-toe, work appropriate shoes to the FHIMA Convention to be donated at the end of our great event to Dress for Success. Donation boxes will be found in the Exhibit Hall at the FHIMA Hospitality booths. I believe that giving back is essential and providing service to others is important. “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
