Efforts to lift the federal ban against allowing Congress to discuss patient identity solutions is picking up momentum, with AHIMA joining provider, payer, and health IT stakeholder groups in asking legislators to make the issue a priority.
As a first step in building the value proposition, leaders can create an IG learning environment within the organization by sharing IG information and resources.
Sally Beahan and Jaime James discussed the IG lessons their organizations have learned as pilot sites for AHIMA’s Information Governance Adoption Model at their presentation at the 2016 CSA Leadership Symposium.
Barclay Blair, founder and executive director of the Information Governance Institute, said during a recent webinar he hopes his organization’s new study will sound the alarm that far too many organizations, across a wide swath of industries, are currently storing “at risk” information over the long term.
In the closing keynote of the 2016 Managing Electronic Records (MER) Conference Wednesday in Chicago, speaker Randolph Kahn, Esq., acknowledged that after two days of presentations about IG, attendees would likely go home feeling overwhelmed.
AHIMA CEO Lynne Thomas Gordon, MBA, RHIA, CPHQ, FAHIMA, was named as one of Health Data Management’s Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT.
