Over a relatively short period of time, the millions of dollars invested in EHR acquisition and integration have produced a domino effect of accelerated change in the HIM environment. Physical medical records are being phased out, more stringent regulatory directives have emerged, and demands have evolved. As a result, the essential tasks being asked of HIM professionals are different.
This session examines a new paradigm for Health Information and Records Management (HIRM) and provides practical guidance to help HIM professionals unwind paper records, offload the burden of low-value production work and lead the transition from traditional records management to an optimized HIRM model.
Throughout this presentation we will discuss:
- Why business as usual is no longer an option for healthcare providers
- The challenges and risks associated with legacy HIM models
- Three foundational elements for enterprise-wide information management and governance
- The primary building blocks of an enterprise-wide HIRM model
- A 5-phased road map that has proven to help providers transition HIM to HIRM
The content in this presentation will provide you with a clearer understanding of foundational elements of enterprise-wide information governance and a proven road map to help you get there. As a result, you’ll be able to deliver an optimized HIRM platform that yields significant cost savings, maximum usability and superior interconnectivity across the continuum of care.
