Bryce Miller, MSHI, RHIA

Dear Members of ArHIMA,

I trust this message finds you all well and thriving. As we journey through the second quarter of this year, I am pleased to share with you some exciting updates from AHIMA 2023 and our recent House of Delegates (HoD) meeting.

AHIMA 2023 proved to be an extraordinary event, marked by innovation, collaboration, and unwavering dedication to our profession. Our members, along with professionals from across the globe, convened to share knowledge, forge connections, and chart the path ahead.

The conference highlighted the evolution of the health information profession and the integral role our community plays in redefining healthcare. We’ve learned that embracing change is not just a necessity; it’s an opportunity to lead, innovate, and inspire. Together, we are leading the charge toward a more patient-centric, data-driven healthcare environment.

The valuable insights and best practices shared at AHIMA 2023 will undoubtedly have a profound impact on our daily work. As we share the insights with our communities, employers, and colleagues, we must use them to advance health information management, promote excellence, and improve patient outcomes.

The HoD meeting, the cornerstone of AHIMA’s governance structure, was an opportunity for us to shape the future direction of our profession and association. Your voices matter, and the HoD is an avenue through which we can collectively drive meaningful change in the health information landscape.

Our ArHIMA delegates actively participated in deliberations, discussions, and decision-making processes. We discussed critical topics, including strategic planning, certification, and professional development. The contributions and insights of our delegates have a direct impact on the policies and initiatives that guide AHIMA’s actions, ensuring our association remains responsive to the evolving needs of our profession. The collaborative spirit and dedication exhibited during the HoD meetings exemplify the strength of our community. As we move forward, we must carry the spirit of the HoD into our work, advocacy, and engagement.

With AHIMA 2023 behind us and the HoD meetings concluded, we are better equipped to navigate the rapidly changing healthcare environment. We remain committed to ensuring that the ArHIMA community is at the forefront of these transformative changes.

In the coming months, we will continue to engage in initiatives, advocacy efforts, and educational programs aimed at empowering our members and advancing our profession. Your support and involvement are essential as we work together to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Thank you for your continued dedication to ArHIMA. It is an honor to serve as your President, and I look forward to our collective journey of growth, progress, and transformation.

Warmest regards,

Bryce Miller, MSHI, RHIA
