Peer Engagement – AHIMA Engage
AHIMA Engage is an online community where members can search for key terms, participate in discussions and resources, network in public forums, and be engaged with peers in the HIM community. It is a great resource for asking questions to your peers and finding out how others are dealing with similar issues as you, be mentored by other professionals, and stay up to date with OkHIMA and AHIMA events. You can log into the AHIMA Engage website using your AHIMA log in credentials.
