HIMAA National Virtual Conference: 25 – 28 October 2021

As the long-standing, pre-eminent specialists in health information and systems, the health information management profession – Health Information Managers, Health Data Analysts, Health Information Researchers, Clinical Coders, Clinical Documentation Specialists and Health Data Auditors – ensures the quality, integrity and security of patient information from the bedside to the highest levels of government. This critically important work ensures that data scientists, researchers and clinicians can confidently use Australia’s health information for internationally recognised research and our governments can trust our high-quality health information for planning, funding and critical decision-making: these have been highlighted particularly critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. The health information management profession operates at the intersection of health care and data science, and health care and technologies that enable the collection of, and access to, health data. The connections we secure between the ‘technology’ and ‘medicine’ branches of science are the primary pathway for the successful enabling of digital technologies in the health care setting.
