HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT JOBS - HIM POSITIONS - MEDICAL RECORDS DEPARTMENT EMPLOYMENT

 

Quality Healthcare through Quality Information (INFORMATION PROVIDED COURTESY OF AHIMA.ORG)

Test results, diagnoses, prescriptions, and treatments -- these are exactly the types of information required to effectively treat patients. Whether stored on paper or electronic medical records, reliable health information is critical to quality healthcare. Enhancing individual patient care through timely and relevant information is one of the primary goals for the health information management profession.

Quality information is also important for administrative purposes. In fact, accurate patient billing and reimbursement to providers centers on competent health information management. Plus, by compiling and analyzing data from many patients, effective health information management can help identify ways to better utilize resources, reveal public health patterns, and lead to establishing new medical treatments.

Yet, just as health information managers make medical records available to legitimate users, they also work diligently to protect patient confidentiality. Likewise, these professionals are pivotal in developing policies to meet information management standards as mandated by the government (such as HIPAA compliance) and other regulatory and accrediting organizations.
