Happy New Year from WHIMA to you! 2021 brings endless possibilities as individuals, as health information professionals in Wisconsin, WHIMA and partners in the American healthcare system!

In 2020, AHIMA unveiled the Professional Enhancement Campaign (PEC) Toolkit. The Professional Enhancement Campaign is a research-founded approach that is designed to assist all of us in articulating what we do in the health information profession. Elevate YOU to a new YOU in HIM in 2021! As you begin and prepare for 2021, check out the blog written by Vicky Wolf, RHIT, CPHQ and learn more about this new branding and the Performance Enhancement Campaign.

As a member of WHIMA, there is an opportunity to let your voice ring in 2021 by providing input into the education that WHIMA delivers to health information professionals in Wisconsin. On Monday, January 11, you will receive a special email from WHIMA that includes a link to the WHIMA 2021 Education survey. Let WHIMA hear from you by taking this brief survey to help the team(s) prepare education that supports your professional growth. Complete the survey for a chance to win 1 of 3 $25 Amazon gift cards or $25 check from WHIMA!

May you seize the opportunities in 2021 that lie in front of each of us! May 2021 bring you good health, peace and prosperity!
