As a part of the National HIMAA webinar program I am pleased to present The Parkville Precinct Digital Health Journey webinar with Laura Pumo, Sofie Karamzalis and Matthew Thatcher. The Parkville Precinct Health Services completed both their Inpatient and Outpatient Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) assessments – an 8-stage model aimed to measure clinical outcomes, patient engagement and clinician use of EMR technology. All four hospitals received a Stage 6 validation for both their inpatient and outpatient EMRAM, with RCH also receiving a Stage 7 for its outpatient EMRAM. If you are working on, planning or considering a transformation of your hospital’s healthcare records, you want to hear this case study. Register for this webinar to be held on Friday 5 August 2022 12pm–1pm AEST.
We would like to bring you training via webinar on ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS 12th Edition. We are calling for your feedback on what you would like training on. Read further under the Education section. Please send your response by 15 August 2022 to email@example.com.

I am excited to call for an EOI for HIMAA Student Community of Practice (SCOP). This is a national group to incorporate students and recent graduates from HIM degrees and HIMAA Clinical Coding courses to play an active role with HIMAA. SCOP will work with me in representing and advocating for students’ interests in initiatives and committees where suitable. It will be an opportunity for the students to get exposure to senior HIMs and to the industry. Please seek out the EOI in this issue for further details.
I remain keen to work with you in leading HIMAA to serve the health information management profession. Please feel free to reach out to me to chat.
