Invitation to Delegates

It’s Sydney. It’s almost summer. It’s in the heart of the city. And it’s the networking event of the year for HIMs, Clinical Coders and other professionals with an interest in health information management.

It’s also jam-packed with the latest and the best in professional development in the format of your choice – papers, panels, practice bytes, posters and practical workshops. And there is plenty of accommodation, public transport and parking within 5 minutes of the venue. So why not answer our call and join HIMAA and the NCCH to:

Diversify, Innovate and Transform

An added bonus this year is that delegates will be joined by members of the Council of the International Federation of HIM Associations, so the proceedings will offer a truly international flavour.
