The Health Records Officers Registration Board of Nigeria (HRORBN), has inducted the first set of 29 Health Information Management (HIM) officers, trained by the Federal School of Statistics, Manchok, Kaduna State.

The Registrar of the board, Alhaji Babagana Mustapha, who administered the Oath in Manchok on Saturday, welcomed the graduates to the HIM profession.

Mustapha, who was represented by Mr Umar Sani, Coordinator, Northwest Zonal Office, Kaduna, enjoined the inductees to adhere to the oath and ethics of the profession.

He urged the HIM officers to be good ambassadors of the profession and avoid any act capable of bringing the profession into disrepute.

“As you are aware, you are not just inductees but ambassadors of health information management anywhere you might find yourself.

“I urge you to use the knowledge you have acquired to bring to bear the desired and needed change in the health care service delivery,” he said.

The registrar described the inductees as partners in progress, particularly in curbing the menace of quackery in the health information management profession.

In his remarks, the acting Rector of the institution, Mr Jumbo Daniel, said that the inductees graduated during the 2022 and 2023 academic session.

Describing the graduates as custodians of vital health care data, Daniel emphasised their critical role in improving patient health outcomes, confidentiality, and maintaining the integrity of healthcare information systems.

“You will agree with me that the role of health information management professionals is indispensable.

“They are the custodians of health statistics, ensuring its accuracy, confidentiality and accessibility to those who need it most,” he added.

He implored the inductees to take advantage of any opportunity for professional development, stressing that the field of health information management was dynamic and evolving. (NAN)
