Celebrate World Health Day with us.

Dear Colleague…

Please take a moment out of your busy schedule to join me for the commemoration of World Health Day, which will take place on Thursday, April 7, 2022, as each year designated by the World Health Organization (WHO).

This year, World Health Day takes on added significance, given the current humanitarian crisis unfolding in Eastern Europe, where thousands and thousands of ordinary people like us are displaced, injured, traumatized and separated. of their family.

While the focus of World Health Day 2022 is on ensuring a healthy world, international data collection is another factor that cannot be ignored. We learned from the International Federation of Health Information Management Associations (IFHIMA) that approximately 25,000 petabytes of healthcare data were generated last year. Consider for a moment the importance of this vast amount of data and its implications for the delivery of care – especially in these troubled global times.

We acknowledge and appreciate that Sound Physicians, our supplier partner at RACmonitor, supports World Health Day. And we express our gratitude to the current president of IFHIMA, Lorraine Fernandes, who will be the special guest of Talk TenTuesdays on April 5, reporting on the data collection.

Thank you also for taking a moment with me to contemplate the significance of World Health Day 2022.

Truly,
