AHIMA introduces the new AHIMA Mission and Vision Statements (4/3/19)
Empowering people to impact health
A world where trusted information transforms health and healthcare by connecting people, systems, and ideas.
AHIMA states “These statements were designed to be bold, to be transformative, and to be inspirational. Together with the AHIMA Board of Directors, we believe they will enhance the value of the HIM profession and position the association as a leader in the future healthcare ecosystem.
We are excited about this mission and vision statement because:
The trusted information in your hands connects our healthcare system and can transform it for the better.
We hope you'll see the importance of your work reflected in the new mission and vision and will share your own stories of where you fit into it. And we hope you will join us in transforming the profession.”
