OHIMA Receives the 2020 AHIMA Innovation Triumph Award

For the second year in a row, the Ohio Health Information Management Association (OHIMA) was recognized with an AHIMA Triumph Award. This year's Triumph Award was in the Innovation Category  It was awarded to OHIMA for its role in transforming the largest state health information show to a virtual conference within a week when COVID-19 hit Ohio. Due to the size of the conference, financial realities and members’ educational needs, rescheduling or cancelling the event was not an option!  Therefore, over the next week, OHIMA Board Members and staff executed a plan to record over 30 hours of educational sessions and deliver them to meeting attendees in a virtual, recorded format. According to the nominating committee, OHIMA’s innovative use of a learning management system serves as a blueprint, opening the door to revolutionizing the way we deliver services and connect with members.

The 2020 AHIMA Innovation Triumph
Award was presented to OHIMA during the virtual AHIMA  Convention. While the presentation ceremony looked quite different compared to previous years (WATCH IT BELOW!) - OHIMA is honored to be recognized for its innovative efforts in transitioning to a virtual conference in just five days!
