Celebrate the 31st Annual HIP Week with IHIMA! 

Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week is a showcase for the thousands of health information management (HIM) professionals who perform their duties masterfully throughout the year.

Please join IHIMA in celebrating the week! IHIMA wants to recognize those Indiana professionals, departments, and organizations celebrating and promoting our profession during this dedicated week. So, share your week with us! We want to know how you are celebrating. Capture your activities during HIP Week and post messages, videos, and/or photos to IHIMA’s Facebook page throughout the week. Don’t forget to tag your posts with the official hashtag: #HIPWeek20. Or, send your activities to us at [email protected] and we will post them.

By sharing your HIP Week activities with IHIMA, you are automatically entered in a drawing. The winner receives a $100 gift card to a restaurant of their choice so they can host a catered departmental lunch.

HIP Week coincides with AHIMA’s Hill Day, where AHIMA members come together on Capitol Hill to advance the health information profession. HIP Week is a great opportunity for professionals to showcase the benefits of our profession, and collectively work to lead the way in health information. Help spread our message of awareness and pride by participating in HIP Week and using #HIPWeek20 in your social media posts!
