In 2011, the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) introduced a second journal for the members of the association in recognition of the need for a mechanism for HIM professionals to share their experiences and knowledge (Bonello 2011). Volume 1, Issue 1 of the professional practice journal, HIM-Interchange (HIM-I) started as pull out in the HIMAA peer reviewed Health Information Management Journal (HIMJ) in Volume 40, Issue 1. In celebration of the tenth anniversary of HIM-I, this article will provide a history of the journal from the humble beginnings as a pull out in HIMJ to the standalone, web-based journal it has become in 2021.
