OHIMA 2022 Annual Meeting & Trade Show


There's No Place Like Home. There's No Place Like H.I.M. There's No Place Like OHIMA! We are returning to Oz for OHIMA22! Follow the yellow brick road to our hybrid OHIMA 2022 Annual Meeting & Trade Show. You won't want to miss the education, networking and fun this event offers! OHIMA22 will take place in person from March 21-23, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio and virtually March 21-May 31, 2022 via our conference platform, Whova.


 In-person attendees can attend the event onsite in Columbus, Ohio at the Hilton Easton and then later watch the recordings online to earn CEUs for the concurrent sessions they missed. Virtual attendees can attend the conference from their home or office; select presentations will be live-streamed and all other educational sessions will be offered in a recorded format - all within Whova. We hope to see you in Columbus!

We are going "clean and green" at OHIMA22! ALL attendees – both in-person and virtual – will be using the conference platform, Whova, to navigate OHIMA22. We will have very limited paper materials onsite. In-person and virtual attendees will use Whova for the agenda, presentation handouts, exhibit hall directory and map, discussion boards, chats during sessions, etc. Attendees should have received an email with access instructions on how to download and access OHIMA22 in Whova on March 17, 2022. If you didn't, contact [email protected] for assistance.

All attendees - in-person and virtual - will also have the opportunity to connect and interact with speakers, other attendees and exhibitors within Whova. Whova offers discussion boards, chats and Q&A within educational sessions, individual messaging and more! Onsite networking opportunities include:
