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.
Two HIM professionals currently immersed in AHIMA’s information governance (IG) pilot program shared, in detail, their experience using AHIMA’s tools to launch their own IG programs during a recent webinar.
As part of a grassroots campaign to spark a national conversation about patient safety identifiers, AHIMA has released a new toolkit the association hopes HIM professionals will use to help spread the word.
From planting the seed to pruning new branches, AHIMA’s Information Governance Adoption Model brings IG to life.
A recent survey with AHIMA members revealed that over half of HIM professionals routinely work on mitigating possible patient record duplicates at their facility, and of those 72 percent work on mitigating duplicate records weekly. Contributing to the issue, less than half (47 percent) of respondents state they have a quality assurance step in their registration or post registration process, and face a lack of resources to adequately correct duplicates.
