Enterprise-wide information should provide one source of clinical truth. But how do provider organizations support this notion while simultaneously capturing and collecting what your organization has earned in the revenue cycle, retaining top talent, streamlining workflow, improving clinical and user satisfaction, reducing operating expenses, and avoiding compliance risk?
During this webinar, a panel of providers discuss the role of health information management (HIM) as it evolves into a function broader than the traditional HIM department and outlines the high expectations required of your HIM function and HIM's importance for success.
After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:
- Understand the changing role of HIM as a function.
- Develop best-practice and achievable HIM metrics affecting the revenue cycle including:
- Staff's ability to transition to changing roles
- Clear and realistic plans for ICD-10

- Quality assurance programs
- Determine the impact HIM has on the revenue cycle, talent, productivity, enterprise information, compliance, and quality.
- Recognize how HIM can affect physician and staff relationships and satisfaction.
- Evaluate approaches to improve HIM including insourcing, outsourcing, and other transformations.
