This year's Health Information Professionals (HIP) week is from March 26 to April 1. The theme for its 75th anniversary is "Health Information Professionals-Leading the Way to Quality Data."
Health Information Management at its core is all about maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of personal health information within four key domains of practice: Data Quality, Privacy, eHIM, and Health Information Management standards. It encompasses a wide scope of practice with an ever-increasing number of roles each drawing from the core skill sets learned in an accredited Health Information Management program.
All HIP are skilled experts in data and information management regardless of the medium – paper, hybrid, electronic – and subject matter experts (SMEs) in the entire lifecycle of the health record, including data collection, and information access, use, disclosure, retention and destruction

Potluck for a cause
The Complex Injury Outpatient Rehabilitation (CIOR) program at Toronto Rehab UC, held a delicious potluck for a good cause potluck to ring in the month of March.
Organized by the program's Social Committee, members of the team were requested to "buy in" their participation for the potluck by bringing in at least one toiletry item in addition to a dish. All items collected were then donated to
Interval House, a shelter for abused women and their children.
Potlucks are a coveted CIOR tradition and are now being used by the program as an interactive platform to build team morale, give back to the community and serve a good cause. The next potluck will be in support of an animal shelter.
UHN hosts first Volunteer Conference
UHN Volunteer Resources earlier this month hosted its first Volunteer Conference.
The event gave more than 60 volunteers the opportunity to learn about careers in healthcare through professionals in the field. Three speakers – nurse manager Susan Kiernan, bioethicist Ruby Shanker and scientist Dennis McCormac – presented on the journey to get to where they are in their current profession, and the steps along the way, such as education, volunteering and work experience.
"Thank you so much for organizing this very first volunteer conference and thank you for giving me a chance to attend," said volunteer Preeti Dhende. "It was a very informative event and I am happy to get some great insight from the speakers."
