IG and informatics are two areas of growth and opportunity for HIM professionals. But what are the next steps for individuals and the profession in taking advantage of those opportunities?
Compliance challenges are ever-present and ever-evolving, and HIM professionals are in the thick of it.
As the term “information governance” becomes more and more familiar to HIM professionals, many are looking for ways to make the case for getting IG efforts underway at their organizations.
Like AHIMA’s Founder Grace Whiting Myers, AHIMA’s Incoming Board President Diann H. Smith, MS, RHIA, CHP, FAHIMA, says her career and passion for HIM was sparked by her love of reading and time spent in libraries.
Monday’s General Session featured several speakers, including an address from Pamela L. Lane, MS, RHIA, interim CEO at AHIMA, a government update from National HIT Coordinator Donald Rucker, and a moderated point/counterpoint on healthcare with former Senator Barbara Boxer and former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich.
