The TxHIMA Education Committee would like to invite you to submit an abstract to help define the breakout sessions and pre-convention workshops for the 2019 TxHIMA Annual Convention that will be held at the Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center in Galveston, Texas. This year's theme is: Strategies for Success: It starts with Us.

Collaboration and sharing is at the heart of any successful education program. With that in mind, TxHIMA would like to encourage you to present a breakout session and/or pre-convention workshop at the upcoming TxHIMA Annual Convention. Presenting a breakout session or pre-convention workshop at the Annual Convention provides you with an excellent opportunity to share your knowledge, experience and outcomes with other interested health information management professionals. The breakout sessions allow for a more in-depth review and presentation of specific focus areas.

  • Patient Identification Reconciliation
  • Revenue Cycle
  • Cyber Security/ Ransomware
