Access is an up to date, modern, robust digital community platform where members can engage with AHIMA, fellow HI professionals, and other content. You can join communities based on your type of work, professional interests, and much more.
What are the benefits of Access?
Access is designed to be a new professional engagement platform for AHIMA members to grow in their careers. And it feels like the social media platforms you’re accustomed to! Get excited to see curated health information content in your newsfeed. On Access, you can follow topics that interest you using your favorite #hashtags. For example, following #PatientID will allow you to see posts with that hashtag, even if the post takes place in a community where you’re not a member. This allows you to discover new conversations and meet new people.
New communities on Access will be available to assist members in their leadership and career journeys, in addition to professional interests. All Access communities will have folders where you can easily share resources and documents.
What communities will be offered on Access?
Access will also feature communities that highlight trending topics and diversity, equity and inclusion, and career resources. Each Component Association (CA) will have a dedicated AHIMA Access community.
AHIMA members will be able to post in Access. Members can also reach a larger community of healthcare professionals through MyDigitalHealthCommunity (MyDHC), which includes CHIME and other organizations.
