AHIMA’s former Communities of Practices (CoP) has transformed into the Engage Online Communities, engage.ahima.org. The site offers a new look, feel, and approach to connecting, collaborating, and communicating with healthcare and health information management (HIM) professionals the world over.
The newest iteration of AHIMA’s communities of practice site has been completely revisited and reworked to provide a smoother, fuller, and more robust social media experience for AHIMA’s members and the healthcare field at large.
Engage now features public HIM content communities, accessible to both AHIMA members and other HIM professionals, in addition to private communities open only to volunteer committee and AHIMA members. The newly designed public communities are organized by defined HIM domains, reflecting strategically aligned content and forums. The new communities’ titles are:
- Coding, Classification and Reimbursement
- Confidentiality, Privacy and Security
- Consumer Engagement and Personal Health Information
- Health Informatics
- Health Information Technologies and Processes
- Healthcare Leadership and Innovation
- Information Governance and Standards
The site itself presents a cleaner look to facilitate navigation; makes it easier to store, tag, and search for HIM resources; and enables users to set up a profile (LinkedIn profiles are easily uploaded to your Engage profile page) to start communicating right away. The members-only directory also permits AHIMA members to immediately connect and network with fellow members who share similar job histories and educational backgrounds. Explore these and other features at the Engage site by visiting http://engage.ahima.org/home . The Help page is a great resource for any questions that may arise, as are these useful video tutorials.
Join our West Virginia Engage Community to engage with other HIM professionals from our state.
