As we begin the month of November I am proud to announce BHIMA is celebrating five years. We officially launched November 1st 2013 and never looked back, initially we had eight (8) founding members and have grown throughout the years.

As BHIMA president, I am proud to say over the years we have had successful conferences, Health Information Professional (HIP) weeks, and community outreach activities. As we embark on our five-year anniversary, I want you to reflect and think outside of the box on how we can improve and transform our profession. It is time for us to hone and own our skills, we are an invaluable asset to the health care delivery team and we must continue to embrace our wonderful profession.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to BHIMA’s mandate, and I encourage you to stay focus and continue to support BHIMA’s core values and initiatives.
