2021 NVHIMA Virtual Annual Convention

Turning Challenges into Opportunities

 

Welcome to NvHIMA

The Nevada Health Information Management Association (NvHIMA) is a component state association of our national organization, the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).

AHIMA is the premier association of health information management (HIM) professionals worldwide. Serving 52 affiliated component state associations and more than 103,000 health information professionals, it is recognized as the leading source of “HIM knowledge,” a respected authority for rigorous professional education and training.

As experts in clinical data and information management, the professional members of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) are vital to the healthcare industry. The unique knowledge and skills that AHIMA members possess are critical for classifying and analyzing health information, transitioning from paper to computer-based medical records, and enhancing data quality—all accomplished while maintaining patient confidentiality and information security.

To join NvHIMA, you must be a member of AHIMA and designate Nevada as your state association. Learn more about AHIMA membership and join today!
