Journal of AHIMA – July 2009

The July feature article takes a look at how HIM professionals have integrated POA reporting into their workflow processes and reporting requirements over the past two years. Other features report on the use of ICD-10 for mortality coding, how to make the most of external coding audits, and the benefits of standards development organizations that collaborate together.

Members may read all stories online in the AHIMA FORE Library: HIM Body of Knowledge. Select features and practice briefs also are available publicly.
