AHIMA offers Component State Association Awards to reward excellence in CSA efforts. At the AHIMA Summer Leadership Symposium on July 12, 2013, IHIMA was awarded second place in the following category- “Support for Local HIM Education Accredited Programs”. Nicole Van Andel, MS RHIA CHPS accepted this award on IHIMA’s behalf. IHIMA offered $2,700 in student scholarships; donated $12,000 dollars to our Indiana HIM/HIT accredited schools; and offered reimbursements for students taking their RHIA/RHIT exam. IHIMA also created a student liaison position on the IHIMA Executive Board. A complete article is included in the August AHIMA Advantage magazine.
