Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) in conjunction with the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) are hosting a Professional Development Day for Health Information Professionals, including Clinical Coders.
The event will be held at the Chateau on the Park, 189 Deans Avenue, Riccarton, Christchurch, New Zealand from 8:30am till 4:15pm on Friday 8th May 2015.
Managing change is very much the order of the day, with keynote presentations on:
• “Better data – Better information – Better Care” by Carolyn Gullery – General Manager
Planning and Funding, CDHB
• “Where have we been, Where are we now, Where do we need to go in the future?” by
Sallyanne Wissmann – President, HIMAA
This will be followed by 2 concurrent workshop streams, each offering 2 consecutive workshops: one stream for Clinical Coders (‘Head Trauma’ & ‘Renal Medicine’), and the other for the more Health Information Management-minded (‘Transition – Hard Copy to EMR – paper lite and paperless’ & ‘The question of privacy and security of electronic health information’).
A Panel Discussion on “How do we work more effectively together to generate better data” will be led, with an expertise-studded cast, by Mary-Ellen Wetherspoon, followed by a wrap up by HIMAA President Sallyanne Wissmann.
Cost for the day is $50 plus 2% credit card surcharge for HIMAA Members
