AHIMA introduces Information Governance 101 series

Dec. 11, 2013

CHICAGO – Dec. 11, 2013 – The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) is offering a new series on Information Governance through its Journal of AHIMA.

The series aims to provide an understanding of why information is an asset and how it can be properly handled. As healthcare becomes a data-driven industry, organizations that implement Information Governance programs will see the most benefit.

The series also will discuss how Information Governance goes beyond the electronic health record, and how the role of enterprise management (staffing, financial, supply chain) is pushing HIM professionals outside traditional roles. Information needs to be managed at every level and HIM professionals can help immensely in this process.

The series is based on AHIMA’s own research as well as presentations that took place during the 2013 Convention and Exhibit in Atlanta.

Articles are published on Wednesdays and Fridays in December: 4 (posted), 6 (posted), 11, 13, 18, 20
