This article considers the application of a formal strategic planning approach to the health information management profession. After a brief discussion of the two main strategic planning models, the process adopted by the Health Information Management Association of Australia at its recent strategic planning workshop is described and the planning outcomes are outlined. The merits of explicitly expressing strategic intent through the creation of a vision of the future and the establishment of strategies and an action plan to realise the vision are discussed.
