AHIMA discussed a shift of focus to the need to move information governance (IG) from the discussion phase to the action phase at this year’s Annual Convention and Exhibit.
At AHIMA’s Annual Convention and Exhibit in New Orleans, LA this year, AHIMA rolled out the first of a suite of new products and services designed to support organizations and professionals who are starting the information governance journey.
New Orleans is world-famous for its spectacular, lavish Mardi Gras celebrations. And while safety might not be top of mind for most parade goers, there are a few tips that they should keep in mind to avoid adding a trip to the hospital to their evening’s activities.
Now that the time of ICD-10-CM/PCS has finally arrived, there will be challenges ahead on how to keep coders engaged after years of preparation and training.
Deborah Green, MBA, RHIA, AHIMA’s executive vice president and chief innovation and global services officer, continued her discussion on the future of information governance (IG) in the Exhibit Hall Theatre J on Tuesday. Green focused her discussion on the value proposition for the IG program, including reduced cost, trusted data, patient safety, safe use of health IT, and interoperability.
