NYHIMA offers a year-round calendar of educational events to New York’s health information management (HIM) professionals and invites dynamic presenters to share their knowledge and expertise. NYHIMA’s HIM professionals seek educational content addressing the changing dynamics of health care, practical approaches and solutions, a greater understanding of new systems and applications, and best practices.

NYHIMA’s objective is to provide HIM professionals with timely, relevant and innovative presentations that provide information they can use in their daily operations, planning for future programs and services, and in their own professional development. Topics should focus on issues of interest to HIM professionals, health information policy-makers and health information technology professionals (e.g. Privacy and Security, Information Governance, CPT, ICD-10-CM/PCS, CDI, and more). NYHIMA members are looking for presenters to provide content that offers practical approaches and solutions while stimulating new ideas, greater understanding of new systems and applications, current issues and best practices.
