The implementation of ICD-10 did result in a perceived loss of coding productivity, with a minimal dip in coding accuracy, according to a recent coding productivity and accuracy survey conducted by the AHIMA Foundation.
As coding resources continue to be scarce, having an in-house coding training program on any scale is a viable solution to meeting your facility’s coding needs.
The annual AHIMA Foundation Research Forum, which took place on Sunday in the convention center, provides an opportunity for the growing health informatics and information management (HIIM) research community to shine, and this year set the stage for the launch of a new HIIM research network.
Switch the lens and look at the patient in a new light. That was the key message delivered by Kim Murphy-Abdouch, RHIA, MPH, FACHE, clinical assistant professor at Texas State University, in her Monday presentation “Patient Access to Personal Health Information: Regulation vs. Reality.”
Education, apprenticeships, and employer commitment are three ways the industry can break down barriers between healthcare employers and veterans and bolster the HIM workforce, said participants in the Healthcare Forward summit presented by AHIMA and the AHIMA Foundation in Washington, DC, on Thursday.
