The healthcare industry is balancing the need to provide quality care while reducing costs and managing population health. To do this effectively, healthcare organizations are becoming more reliant on the optimal gathering, analysis, and use of health information. The AHIMA Convention and Exhibit will explore the many ways health information professionals must inspire, innovate and lead their organizations into the future of health data analytics, informatics, and information governance.
Each year, the convention offers interactive educational presentations, panel discussions and open forums to discuss how information can be transformed into a strategic asset for healthcare purposes. Today’s healthcare system requires the use of information for many purposes: to inform decisions on patient treatment plans, staffing levels, quality reporting, reimbursement, financial planning, and population health management. Information is shared not only within a healthcare system, but now also across the healthcare eco-system and with patients.
Plan to attend the AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, and join with other healthcare leaders, health information professionals, and healthcare stakeholders from every segment of healthcare to get industry updates, learn best practices, share innovative ideas, gain insights from lessons learned, and discuss how health information is shaping the future of healthcare. Additionally, the exhibit hall will feature new and exciting innovative technology solutions to help advance your organization and gain a competitive advantage.
As the most extensive exposition in the industry, the AHIMA Convention and Exhibit attracts decision makers and influencers in HIM and HIT. 2016, in Baltimore over 2800 registered attendees walked the exhibit floor looking for solutions in areas such as the electronic health record (EHR), clinical vocabularies and mapping, revenue cycle management, information governance, workflow, interoperability, transcription, and much more. These decision makers are looking for the solutions you can provide.
