AHIMA boosts KSA presence with virtual healthcare event

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) International, a global nonprofit association of health information professionals, and AccuMed will host a session for healthcare providers in the Kingdom, titled “Operation: Health Beta Version,” on Dec. 14. The meeting was originally slated to take place in Saudi Arabia this December, but instead a preview version will take place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to Operation: Health Beta Version, AHIMA International also announced it will host a session at the Global Health Exhibition by Informa on Dec. 9 from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. KSA time. This virtual meeting will feature participants from Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries. The session will focus on best practices for clinical documentation integrity (CDI), coding, billing, and revenue cycle management.

“I’m so pleased AHIMA International is forming relationships in Saudi Arabia, as we work to reach health information professionals, organizations, and industry lead- ers around the world,” said AHI- MA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris.

Christina Roosen, vice president of AHIMA International, said Operation: Health will feature both international and local speakers. “Our vision for this event is to bring relevant and actionable regional information for improving healthcare delivery through quality health information and analytics.”

Speakers at Operation: Health will address a number of critical topics, including improving end- to-end healthcare results through health information management, CDI, coding, reimbursement, liquidity and revenue cycle management. Attendees can earn up to five continuing education credits, with additional credits available through workshop participation.

Harris will deliver a key-note address, as will Joseph J. Fifer, president and CEO of the Healthcare Financial Management Association, and Russ Branzell, CEO and president of the College of Healthcare Information Executives.
