If Data Could Talk, What Would It Say?

As health information professionals know, health data is much more than it appears. It tells the story of patients and caregivers, of challenges and triumphs.

Join us at the Baltimore Convention Center this October to connect with your community of health information professionals, engage in conversations about the future of healthcare, and learn about trending topics that will have everyone talking.

AHIMA23 is more than an event, it’s where health information comes to life.

Registration will open soon.

In an Evolving Industry, HI Professionals Must Also Grow and Change

As the healthcare industry, technology, and the world change, so too must health information professionals. The work performed today by health information professionals looks very different from the work performed nearly a century ago by the industry’s pioneer medical record librarians.

Success Requires a Shot of Emotional Intelligence

Studies indicate that it is not skill or knowledge that separates effective and nominal performers. Instead, it is low emotional intelligence that separates the unsuccessful from the highly successful.

To cultivate and improve emotional intelligence, focus on behaviors consistent with:

  • Mindfulness
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship management
