March 22 to March 28 is Health Information Professionals (HIM) Week! HIM is an allied health profession responsible for ensuring the availability, accuracy and protection of the clinical information needed to provide health care-related decisions.
Health information professionals work in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, physician offices and many other organizations. They play a key role in the effective management of health data and medical records needed to deliver quality health care to the public. The work HIM professionals do to ensure the integrity of health information is imperative to clinical and administrative decision making. Timely access to reliable information helps everyone make important decisions and leads to a healthy society.
All of Gerber Memorial HIM went Hollywood by depicting a different movie theme each day.
Take time during this week to thank HIM for all they do.
