2017 AHIMA Convention And Exhibit - American Health Information Management Association

3,000

Overview

Event Overview:

The healthcare industry is balancing the need to provide quality care while reducing costs and managing population health. To do this effectively, healthcare organizations are becoming more reliant on the optimal gathering, analysis, and use of health information. The 89th AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, October 7-11, 2017, in Los Angeles, CA, will explore the many ways health information professionals must inspire, innovate and lead their organizations into the future of health data analytics, informatics, and information governance.

Each year, the convention offers interactive educational presentations, panel discussions and open forums to discuss how information can be transformed into a strategic asset for healthcare purposes. Today’s healthcare system requires the use of information for many purposes: to inform decisions on patient treatment plans, staffing levels, quality reporting, reimbursement, financial planning, and population health management. Information is shared not only within a healthcare system, but now also across the healthcare eco-system and with patients.

Plan to attend the 89th AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, and join with other healthcare leaders, health information professionals, and healthcare stakeholders from every segment of healthcare to get industry updates, learn best practices, share innovative ideas, gain insights from lessons learned, and discuss how health information is shaping the future of healthcare. Additionally, the exhibit hall will feature new and exciting innovative technology solutions to help advance your organization and gain a competitive advantage.

We look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles, CA, October 7-11, 2017.

Exhibitor Information:

As the most extensive exposition in the industry, the AHIMA Convention and Exhibit attracts decision makers and influencers in HIM and HIT. Last year in Baltimore over 2800 registered attendees walked the exhibit floor looking for solutions in areas such as the electronic health record (EHR), clinical vocabularies and mapping, revenue cycle management, information governance, workflow, interoperability, transcription, and much more. These decision makers are looking for the solutions you can provide.

Keynote Speakers

Newt Gingrich

Former U.S. Speaker of the House & Fox News Contributor

Former U.S. Speaker of the House & Fox News Contributor

Newt Gingrich was the 50th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. Today he is a Fox News contributor and senior advisor at Dentons, the world’s largest law firm with more than 6,500 lawyers in 50 countries and offices in more than 125 cities. He advises the firm’s world-class Public Policy and Regulation practice and is also a senior scientist at Gallup. 

From May 2011 to May 2012, Mr. Gingrich was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president of the United States, winning the South Carolina and Georgia primaries. The campaign was especially notable for its innovative policy agenda, its effort to bring new coalitions into the Republican fold, and for his debate performances. 

Widely recognized for his commitment to a better system of health for all Americans, his leadership in the US Congress helped save Medicare from bankruptcy, prompted FDA reform to help the seriously ill, and initiated a new focus on research, prevention, and wellness.

Barbara Boxer

Former U.S. Senator

Barbara Boxer became a United States senator for the state of California in January 1993, after 10 years of service in the House of Representatives and six years on the Marin County Board of Supervisors. In January 2017, she stepped down after four terms in the Senate. 

A national leader on environmental protection, Senator Boxer was the ranking member on the US Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW). Senator Boxer was also the ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Ethics. She was a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where she chaired the first subcommittee ever to focus on global women’s issues. As a member of the democratic leadership in the Senate, Senator Boxer served as the chief deputy whip from 2005 to 2016. 

A strong proponent of life-saving medical research, Senator Boxer wrote bipartisan legislation to accelerate America’s contribution to combat global HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.
