Their mission is to improve health information management by supporting the people, research and resources that advance the HIM profession.

By donating to the AHIMA Foundation for Education and Research, we provide crucial scholarship funding to the healthcare leaders of tomorrow. In addition to educational funding, MedPartners contributes to the American Health Information Management Association as a Silver business partner. Purchasing educational tools from AHIMA supports the organization as well as our staff. In the constantly changing environment of Health Informatics, effective and thorough education is imperative as well as continuing educational courses and tools.
The mission of Community Tampa Bay is to promote dialogue and respect among all cultures, religions and races by cultivating leaders to change communities. Based in Florida, we work with individuals, groups and organizations to create an inclusive society strengthened and empowered by its diversity. As long as there is bias and bigotry, fed by stereotypes and prejudice, there is work to be done. By influencing attitudes and behaviors through our initiatives we lead efforts to increase communication and understanding among persons of diverse backgrounds. We openly address ignorance, fear and hatred by providing safe havens for meaningful dialogue. Yes, we try to change the world – one person at a time. We promote a community of socially responsible and caring citizens by empowering individuals to become genuine agents of change in their communities.
The Ronald McDonald House provides families stability and resources so they can keep their child healthy and happy. Whether those problems involve how to stay near and support a hospitalized child, how to afford staying together in another city while a child is undergoing treatment, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community. They not only help families address these problems, but by contributing to this organization, help and solutions are provided for these and other issues related to the health and well-being of children across the world.
Wounded Warrior Project was implemented by MedPartners at the 2011 California Health Information Management Association’s (CHIA) State Convention. A challenge was set during the Convention at MedPartners Booth. For every business card received, MedPartners would donate $1 to the Wounded Warrior Project. This challenge brought awareness to WWP and many of our attendees shared stories of family and friends who are currently serving or have served our great Nation. A check was presented to a special someone for $154.00 and our own employee Kyle O’Donnell, our West Coast Regional Account Manager, announced that he would match this amount and contribute another $154.00 for this great cause. As a veteran and a Member of the Hillsborough County Homeless Coalition Board of Directors, Kyle recognizes the wealth of support that is contributed to wounded soldiers and their families.
