Registration for the AHIMA21 Virtual Conference: Transforming the Future of Health Data is open! This premier education and exhibition event is designed to provide attendees a one-of-a-kind virtual experience.
Whether you are seeking cutting-edge education, evaluating the latest market innovations, or are seeking new connections in the world of health information, AHIMA21 is the place to be.
Attendees will experience dozens of virtual educational sessions and networking opportunities, a dynamic virtual exhibit hall, and full access to on-demand session recordings for additional CEU opportunities.
Here are nine reasons why AHIMA21 is the perfect investment:
1. We Promise an Award-Winning Experience
The AHIMA20 Virtual Conference received a 2021 Medigy HITMC Award for Virtual Event of the Year. The award’s judges said the AHIMA20 annual conference “combined great keynotes and educational breakouts with a solid virtual conference technology to offer attendees a low glitch experience. Even the virtual exhibit hall was well put together.” At AHIMA, we’re excited to build on last year’s learnings and successes as we launch AHIMA21.
2. Expand Your Professional Horizons
The job market for health information professionals has changed dramatically since the emergence of COVID-19. HIM directors had to figure out how to scale up telehealth programs on the fly. HIM departments had to figure out infection control protocols. More and more operations continue to settle into remote environments.
All of these shifts proved how capable health information professionals are at adapting to a changing healthcare landscape. AHIMA21 is the perfect place for these professionals to share what they’ve learned with their peers—to help them become indispensable to the organizations they work for.
3. Save Your Organization Money
With travel, lodging, meals, and the cost of registration, in-person events can quickly devour your organization’s travel and education budget—to say nothing of the fact that live events meant that attendees had to spend more time away from their job. AHIMA21's virtual format is an easy and low-cost way to access the education you need to stay current with the fast pace of today's healthcare landscape.
4. Attend the Conference—At Your Pace
The unprecedented flexibility of AHIMA21 is ideal for members with multiple credentials to maintain. For example, attendees will no longer have to choose between two sessions held at the same time. Attendees can listen to presentations live and engage in conversations with other attendees afterwards—or they can access session recordings for up to 45 days after the event.
5. The Return on Investment is High
Health data and health information's importance has become clearer than ever. The AHIMA21 Virtual Conference gathers a dedicated and engaging community of health information professionals and leaders to share, learn, and innovate best practices and effective solutions that impact patient care. Gain new insights, discover new trends, and bring back creative solutions to build a more connected, accurate, and innovative tomorrow.
6. Grow Your Professional Network
The ‘new normal’ of COVID-19 has forced many HIM departments to do more with less. This makes AHIMA21’s professional development and continuing education opportunities more valuable than ever. Attendees can learn about cutting-edge trends and share best practices in HIM domains including clinical coding, privacy, security, revenue cycle, patient identification and matching, social determinants of health, clinical documentation integrity, informatics, and much more. Whether you work in a hospital or for the World Health Organization, it’s become clear that leadership skills are crucial to managing the post-COVID landscape.
7. Learn Beyond the Conference
AHIMA21 offers more benefits than ever, including an opportunity for attendees to learn best practices and solutions from industry experts during education sessions; access all on-demand education sessions for 45 days after the event, making earning CEUs easy; and foster new relationships with other health information professionals, industry leaders, and solutions providers who highlight their offerings at the conference.
8. Worry-Free Networking
Social distancing, wearing a mask, and uncertainty of others’ vaccination status make it difficult—not to mention awkward—to network in person. AHIMA21 features innovative, easy, and fun ways to virtually network throughout the conference, even during educational sessions.
9. Focus on You
By attending from the comfort of your own home, participants are signaling their dedication to continuing education, their passion for professional development, and their commitment to empowering people to impact health.
