The national HIMAA Conference is our flagship Health Information Management event, receiving local and international recognition for its high calibre speakers, quality content and value-for-money professional development offering for members and the wider industry.
The 2024 Conference will be held in Melbourne, and we are looking to recruit two key roles in the Conference Committee who will be responsible for organising review of the abstract and paper submissions and coordinating the Conference program.
