OHIMA21 IS GOING VIRTUAL!  Please consider submitting a virtual presentation proposal by August 31st! 


The Ohio Health Information Management Association is inviting individuals or companies to submit presentation proposals to be considered for OHIMA's 2021 Virtual Conference which will take place February 22-24, 2021.  We are still in the early planning stages of this virtual event. Regardless, WE NEED SPEAKERS!  Please submit your presentation proposal by the deadline - which has been extended to August 31st. 

OHIMA is looking for experts to present on current topics and the latest trends in health information. Topic ideas include (but are not limited to): **Coding (advanced inpatient, outpatient, pediatric, physician office, etc.); Clinical Documentation Improvement; Compliance; Privacy & Security; advanced Human Resources issues; Leadership; Revenue Cycle; Legal; high-level Project Management; Technology; Data Analytics; and other emerging issues. 

Priority consideration is given to speakers with hands-on implementation experience and to presentations offering actionable ideas and substantive answers to specific, real-world questions. Share your mistakes along with your successes! 

Improve your odds of being selected. The committee will be looking for:

  • Best practices/lessons learned
  • Speakers who engage the audience 
  • Real implementation stories/ detailed case studies
  • Intermediate to advanced content
  • Presentations without product/sales pitches 


*PLEASE NOTE: Speakers MUST speak for the entire block of time allotted (give or take 5 minutes) for CEU purposes!  Breakout sessions are scheduled for 1 hour. 


Presentation proposals must be submitted by AUGUST 31, 2020. The OHIMA Virtual Conference committee will review proposals and select presentations by November 15, 2020. You will be contacted no later than December 1st of the programming committee's decision of whether or not your proposal is accepted. 

Keynote Speakers: All speakers (including professional keynote speakers) must submit the brief online presentation proposal information to be considered. You may provide the link to your website and/or more detail about your presentation in the comment section. 

OHIMA Member Speakers: Share your expertise with your peers! All OHIMA member speakers shall have their registration fee waived in return for speaking. Individual presenters and panel members shall have their registration fee waived for the day they are speaking. 

Vendor Speakers: We welcome and encourage companies to submit a presentation proposal, but all HIM-affiliated companies must abide by the following criteria:

  • Content MUST be educational.  Attendee feedback consistently shows that session attendees do not want to hear product pitches; they are looking for real insight that is going to help them do their jobs better. 

  • Anyone affiliated with an HIM company MUST co-present with a client to further demonstrate the hands-on application of the topic being presented. Submissions not satisfying this criteria will be denied. 
     
  • We have not yet determined if we will be having a virtual tradeshow as part of this event. Additional requirements vendor speakers - such as exhibiting - will be determined well before the deadline so your company can decide if they wish to proceed.  Thank you for your patience.
