FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALBUQUERQUE, NM Holly Shipp Buchanan, director of UNM's Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC) and Associate Vice President for Knowledge Management and Information Technology, was recently approved for membership in the prestigious Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP).

The AHIP is the national Medical Library Association's peer-reviewed professional development and career recognition credentialing program that recognizes achievements in continuing education, teaching, publishing, research and other contributions to the profession.

"To remain at the forefront of patient care, an academic health center must have access to the most current information," Buchanan, said. "As part of that process, it's important that HSLIC faculty is peer-reviewed and credentialed. I'm pleased to be representing the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center through this national academy."

The AHIP credential signifies the highest standards of professional competency and achievement in the field of health care information. Maintaining membership requires participation in continuing education courses and other professional development activities to maintain the necessary knowledge and skills to support the institution's mission and goals.

UNM's Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center improves and enhances human health through support, innovation, and leadership in the organization, delivery and use of quality information. We create an environment that fosters the development and sharing of knowledge for the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and its partners.
