The Massachusetts Health Information Management Association (MaHIMA) is the leading nonprofit healthcare information organization in Massachusetts. We have over 1,650 active members who attend our educational workshops and seminars. Our members make important purchasing decisions for their organizations regarding health information products and services. MaHIMA’s mission is to promote professional growth, competence and life-long learning; influence governmental, educational, social and business issues that affect the management and use of health information; contribute to the quality and efficiency of health information systems and structures; and promote synergy and alignment among disciplines that manage and support confidential health information. We could not do it without our generous corporate partner sponsors.
