Hello and welcome to the long, hot days of an Arkansas summer! My name is Sara Daniel, and I am your 2018-2019 ArHIMA President. I want to thank you all for the help and support you provide as we work to improve the management of health information and ultimately the health of the residents of our state. The mission of ArHIMA is to lead the health informatics and information management community to advance professional practice and standards in Arkansas. There is no better time than now to continue your education or earn that additional certification. ArHIMA hopes to provide you with an avenue to connect with other professionals, discuss best practices, volunteer your time, and develop solutions to common problems facing our industry. On behalf of the board, we look forward to working with you this year. Don’t forget to check out the new ArHIMA website for information on upcoming meetings and education opportunities! Enjoy your summer and let us hear from you!
