Health information management driving the information highway

This story first appeared in the July 2014 issue of Pulse+IT Magazine.

HIMAA is heading to Darwin for its national conference in October, teaming up with the University of Sydney’s National Centre for Classification in Health (NCCH) to provide a wide-ranging event that highlights how health information managers and clinical coders are driving the information highway.

In an historic coalition, the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) has this year teamed up with the University of Sydney’s National Centre for Classification in Health (NCCH) to present its annual national conference.

HIMAA president Sallyanne Wissmann and NCCH director Richard Madden say that both the partnership and the conference theme were developed just after the change of federal government late last year, but they couldn’t have predicted then how appropriate the theme of Health Information Management: Driving the Information Highway would be.

The aim in offering a combined conference program is to extend the learning and professional development opportunity for the organisations’ respective and related constituencies, they say.

Ms Wissmann says health information is a fundamental component of the health system, with so many outcomes of the health system dependent on good quality, fit for purpose, patient, clinical and business information.
