Award-winning conference features more than 40 dynamic sessions
American Health Information Management Association CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE, said the AHIMA21 Virtual Conference, taking place Sept. 20-22, 2021, will feature a number of can’t-miss sessions for health information professionals and healthcare journalists.
“I’m excited health information professionals can attend critical AHIMA21 sessions while earning CEUs from the comfort and safety of their homes,” said AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE. “We also invite journalists to cover the meeting, as presenters will discuss important topics relevant to the health information profession and the entire healthcare ecosystem.”
Education sessions at AHIMA21 include:
- Governing a Healthcare Data Tsunami in the Age of Interoperability
- Taking an AI-Powered Approach to Clinical Documentation
- Leveraging Innovative Technology to Support HIM Practices
- Innovation Out of Adversity: What the Lessons of COVID Tell Us About What HIM Will Focus on This Decade
- De-Coding Complication of Care
AHIMA21 comes on the heels of AHIMA20, which was the Association’s first-ever virtual annual conference. AHIMA20 was named Virtual Event of the Year at the 2021 Medigy HITMC Awards. The award’s judges said last year’s conference “combined great keynotes and educational breakouts with a solid virtual conference technology to offer attendees a low glitch experience. Even the virtual exhibit hall was well put together.”
Editor’s note: Reporters interested in covering the meeting as a credentialed journalist should email Mike Bittner, AHIMA’s media and communications manager.
