AHIMA is asking informatics practitioners and informatics educators to comment on its new set of graduate level health informatics competencies—which have been posted online—by October 3.
This month’s HIM Frontlines post discusses the path for HIM professionals to the C-suite.
As health information exchange organizations take the spotlight for their role in healthcare reform and various information exchange programs, HIM professionals have wondered just what skills are required to work for an HIO, and the specific job roles available. In a new study jointly published by AHIMA and the HIMSS, HIO survey participants offered insight into their hiring practices for key health IT and health information management roles with their organizations.
The key to being a leader, to helping achieve the goal of better healthcare at lower costs, is to foster good relationships. That was a finding of a recent study of leadership in HIM that will be discussed by co-presenters Patty Thierry Sheridan, MBA, RHIA, FAHIMA and Valerie J. M. Watzlaf, PhD, RHIA, FAHIMA at their session “HIM Leaders and the Practice of Leadership” on October 1 at 11:15 a.m. during AHIMA’s 86th Annual Convention and Exhibit.
This week, Sheridan shared some thoughts with Journal staff on what good leadership looks like.
