TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 28, 2022 ─ An innovator in Electronic Health Record (EHR) software for behavioral health care providers, Health Information Management Systems (HiMS) has been recognized as the Blue Cross Blue Shield Best Place to Work in the 3 to 50 employees category, by the Tucson Metro Chamber’s Copper Cactus Awards program. 

The Best Place to Work Award is given to a business that has honest leadership with a clear vision and identity, providing employees with an understanding of where the company is pointed, what the company believes in and what everyone is working toward. In receiving the award, HiMS demonstrates that it provides flexible growth for employees and a culture of collaboration, while remaining open about how the company is performing and securing honest feedback from its employees. 

“We have created an inclusive culture that’s based on collaboration, innovation and also a bit of fun, and our success is due to our employees,” said Khalid Al-Maskari, CEO of HiMS. “Tucson is our home, and we are incredibly proud to be recognized with the Copper Cactus Award for Best Place to Work for our efforts – not just at our office, but throughout our community.” 

Based in Tucson, Ariz. and with offices in Phoenix and Lehi, Utah, the HiMS team works to transform the integrated health care experience through its award-winning electronic health record (EHR) software, Axiom, and mobile communications app, AxiaGram. These solutions reduce administrative burdens while addressing clinical workflow and productivity issues. As a result, health care providers can optimize efficiency, manage costs, and achieve optimal patient outcomes. 

The Tucson Metro Chamber’s 25th annual Copper Cactus Awards, presented by Wells Fargo, celebrate Southern Arizona’s outstanding small businesses and charitable nonprofits. Approximately 270 nominations were submitted this year, and a panel of 11 independent judges reviewed and scored the applications.
