MRO commissioned and published a nationwide survey of senior HIM professionals about release of information challenges, priorities, and strategies. The study, conducted by Porter Research, gathered executive insights representing 33 hospitals, 1253 clinics and 620,719 annual ROI requests. The summary report offers information to help organizations assess PHI disclosure management strategies and evaluate ROI vendors.
HIM professionals have worked diligently to protect data privacy and security during a time of digital transformation in healthcare. The unfortunate reality?
