Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week was held March 17-23, 2013.
HIP Week was moved from fall to the spring starting in 2012 to raise awareness and coincide with AHIMA's Hill Day, where members converge on Capitol Hill to advance HIM. HIP Week is a great opportunity for professionals to showcase the benefits of their profession, working collectively to deliver quality healthcare through quality information.
Dates for HIP Week 2014 will be announced on this site when it is finalized. In the meantime, planning kit materials below from HIP Week 2013 are available for your use.
