Hello everyone, my name is Kristi Fahy Wesolek, RHIA. I am so incredibly excited as your AHIMA Global Conference Committee Chair and General Session emcee to welcome you to Columbus, Ohio for AHIMA22. Fall is coming and change is in the air... and to me, this year’s conference symbolizes a fresh start!
It’s been three years since we’ve all been together. In that time, we’ve collectively lived through a global pandemic, made adjustments to our professional lives and broke in new virtual realities. We’ve experienced the highs and lows of the “Great Resignation.” And through it all, we continue to ride the waves of an ever-changing healthcare industry where health data and information, central to everything we do, continue to explode.
Do you think we have a lot to catch up on? I sure do!
We deserve a fresh start. We deserve to see old friends. We deserve to network and make new connections. We deserve to learn. We deserve to feel empowered. And we deserve to seize the opportunity for all these things at AHIMA22.
The health information community is so special, and we deserve to show up for ourselves and our profession, to feel inspired about the future and embrace the changes that are already here. And all future health information professionals deserve the opportunity to carry on our legacy.
Columbus is the perfect place for a fresh start—it’s a fun, vibrant city that easily takes unsuspecting visitors by surprise with delight. In a way, that sounds a lot like the health information profession to me—our adaptability makes us amazing and full of surprises!
So please, join me, and let’s have some fun in Columbus, Ohio from October 9-12th. This year is going to be epic, I can feel it. Register today and I promise you’ll be glad you did. Our fresh start is worth it.
