The IFHIMA Board acknowledges and celebrates Margaret Skurka’s 15 years in representing IFHIMA to the WHO Family of International Classifications (FIC) Educaiton and Implementation Committee (EIC) and three years representing IFHIMA on the Morbidity Reference Group (MbRG). Margaret has done an exemplary job of representing IFHIMA and the health information management profession, particularly as ICD-11 development has matured and in 2022 begins to be officially used for morbidity coding.
Margaret has kept IFHIMA involved with our official “voice and vote” through numerous activities including the anticipated WHO Academy ICD-11 course that will launch in 2022. As an educator and coding consultant, and IFHIMA Past President, Margaret has aided the IFHIMA Board and membership in advancing our mission, vision and values.
While Margaret is retiring from her IFHIMA appointment, she remains involved in other IFHIMA activities and in her consulting practice. Again, we thank Margaret for her service to WHO FIC EIC and MbRG.
