Dear AHIMA Engage Community Member,
As part of our transformation toward long-term viability and relevance, we have begun efforts to build a foundation internally by becoming more market-driven while also charting our direction for the future. These priorities allow us to focus our resources to achieve operational excellence and simultaneously build the longer-term mission, vision, values, and strategy for AHIMA.
AHIMA will continue to support and strengthen products related to Coding, Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI), AHIMA World Congress, Advocacy, Certification/Credentialing, Privacy/Security, and Higher Education, as well as Membership, Periodicals, and Conference.
To provide focused resources on the products listed above, AHIMA will sunset the Information Governance & Standards, Health Informatics, and Consumer Engagement Engage Communities at the end of the year. This means that these communities and their library items will no longer be available after December 31, 2018.
We previously notified you that the Data Analytics Engage community would be discontinued. However, the Data Analytics Engage Community will remain in place. This is to continue discussion about other avenues related to data analytics to advance our profession. Our goal is to reimagine our Data Analytics products and services to better direct and support current and future professionals.
Remaining Engage HIM Content Communities include:
- AHIMA Foundation Research
- Care Coordination and Management
- Clinical Documentation Improvement
- Coding, Classification & Reimbursement
- Confidentiality, Privacy & Security
- Data Analytics
- Health Information Technologies & Processes
- Healthcare Leadership and Innovation
The Engage online community platform continues to be one of AHIMA’s most valuable member benefits, where you can network and share resources with other HIM professionals. If you have any questions about Engage, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
