November 6-12 is Health Information & Technology (HI&T) Week in Canada. This week we celebrate the work of Health Information Management (HIM) professionals and all of those involved in the implementation and management of information technology (IT) in health care.
This year’s theme is Accurate Health Information for Care You Trust. A number of HITS-NS staff have achieved their HIM professional designation. HIM professionals play a vital role ensuring health information is available, accurate and confidential. HIM professionals must manage consumer health care data and information resources. They are expertly trained in the management of health information and ensure it is available throughout the health care delivery system by managing both paper and electronic systems for information storage and retrieval.
