The recently concluded 2017 AHIMA House of Delegates held in Los Angeles on Sunday October 8th, was charged this year with examining and making recommendations on five issues of current importance to the HIM profession. CHIA’s five delegates were each assigned primary responsibility for one House issue. The five topics were divided into issue groups consisting of:

  1. Business Process Outsourcing
  2. Consumer Engagement
  3. HIM Reimagined (HIMR)
  4. Professional Development
  5. Future of the House

The CHIA Delegates to AHIMA participated in the sessions bringing forth any comments that the CHIA membership shared with them prior to convention. The five issues and recommendations made are summarized in the online CHIA Delegate report.
