UVMC’s Georgia Overholser Recognized by State Association
Georgia Overholser, UVMC Site Manager of Health Information Services (HIS), was recognized with a statewide organization’s Ambassador to Education Award.
Overholser’s selection was announced recently by the Ohio Health Information Management Association. She was nominated based on her strong commitment and support of the Health Information Technology program at Sinclair Community College.
Overholser, BS, RHIA, has been employed at UVMC for more than 30 years, performing a variety of roles in the HIS department. As manager, she coordinates all activities for health information and the release of information.
A Troy resident, Overholser is a graduate of Sinclair with an associate degree in Health Information Management and the University of Cincinnati with a bachelor’s degree in Health Information Management.
The award recognizes Overholser’s continuing work with Sinclair students during their clinical rotation. While the students have specific assignments to complete, those in the UVMC program have additional “Georgia” projects that she said go “well beyond” the required assignments.
UVMC has accepted students since 1989. The students now are required to complete 200 hours of clinical rotation.
