Letter from the President

April 9, 2021

Greetings CtHIMA Members!

Spring is here and things are beginning to look up as far as the pandemic goes as Connecticut successfully rolls out the administration of COVID vaccines and the governor reduces most of the restrictions implemented earlier in lockdown.

With the help of supportive vendors like Verisma and Top Gun Audit School CtHIMA has been able to provide virtual education and CEUs to its members throughout the pandemic.

Most recently, attorney and forever avid supporter of CtHIMA, Jen Cox gave a highly informative and well received three-part series on Information Blocking.

With all of that said, CtHIMA is so looking forward to getting back on track with our main mission as a CSA which is to provide live, face-to-face education sessions to our membership to allow not only learning and professional growth but also networking and the chance to socialize!

The Board is currently planning for CtHIMA Annual 2021 to be held Sunday, August 15th – Monday, August 16th at the Sheraton Hartford South Hotel in Rocky Hill. So be sure to mark your calendars to save these dates! The Board plans to make this Annual exceptionally memorable since we were not able to hold Annual last year!

Any suggestions for vendors, speakers, topics, please forward to Tara at We will again be offering a raffle of themed baskets to raise money to promote CtHIMA activities. Anyone interested in donating a basket can contact Tara with your ideas! The Board would also welcome volunteers to assist with set-up, clean-up, registration or announcing speakers.

Also in the works for the Board is the upcoming election! So start to think about running for a seat on the Board or of nominating someone who would make a good first-year director or president-elect. They must be an active AHIMA member demonstrating leadership qualities and to be president-elect must hold an AHIMA credential. When shared, the duties and responsibilities are not that daunting! The Board could use some renewed energy and fresh ideas in the coming year, so please consider running or nominating to help support your professional!

Stay safe! Keep well! And here’s looking forward to Annual if not something sooner!

Jim Donaher
President CtHIMA
