Through the generosity of AHIMA members the AHIMA Foundation can provide material relief to those whose professional practice has been thrust above and beyond the call of duty through the Health Information Relief Operation (HIRO) Fund. The HIRO fund is an ongoing disaster recovery fund to assist HIM professionals whose life and communities have been shattered by natural or man-made events.

As HIM professionals, we are bound to the overall management of data, its confidentiality, privacy, and security. It is important to stay abreast of proper disaster planning protocols and take advantage of the available tools. Refresh your knowledge and skills regarding how to appropriately respond to external requests for health information from victims’ family, the media, and law enforcement in a disaster situation.
