President’s Incoming Message

Dear members of the Alabama Association of Health Information Management,

I am Dr. Shannon Houser, and I am humbled and honored to serve as the president of our valued association. As we enter a new era of healthcare delivery and technology, I see this as an exciting opportunity for us to lead the charge in shaping the future of health information management.

My vision for the association is one that prioritizes education, membership, and advocacy. We need to equip our members with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complex healthcare landscape, while also encouraging them to think outside the box and embrace new technologies.

To achieve this vision, I have outlined several plans for the year ahead. First and foremost, I believe we need to focus on increasing our membership and engagement. We need to ensure that we are reaching all corners of the state, and that our members are actively participating in the association’s activities.

Secondly, I believe we need to enhance our professional development offerings. This means partnering with industry leaders to provide cutting-edge educational opportunities and supporting our members in achieving their professional goals.

Thirdly, we need to advocate for policies that support our mission. This means engaging with lawmakers, healthcare providers, and other stakeholders to ensure that the importance of health information management is recognized and supported.

Finally, I want to encourage diversity and inclusion within our association. This means actively seeking out and welcoming members from diverse backgrounds and promoting an environment that values all perspectives.

I am confident that with these plans in place, we can achieve our vision for the future of health information management in Alabama. But we cannot do it alone. I call upon each and every one of you to join me in this journey, to contribute your ideas, your passion, and your expertise to help shape the future of our association and our industry.

Thank you for your support, and let’s embark on this incredible journey together.
