Southeastern Michigan Region (SEMHIMA)
Southeastern Michigan Health Information Association or SEMHIMA is MHIMA’s largest regional group!
SEMHIMA was formed in 1953 and was originally called the “Greater Detroit and Vicinity Association of Medical Record Librarians.” Over the years our name has changed quite a bit. However, our purpose to be a leader in the HIM industry has remained the same. Some of our other names throughout the years are the “South Eastern Michigan Association of Medical Librarians” and the “South Eastern Medical Records Association”. Our association has been SEMHIMA since February 1993.
SEMHIMA serves the following counties:
Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Saint Clair, Washtenaw, Wayne
