Respond to that in 150 words
Health information managers/professions are responsible for a wide range of roles in the healthcare environment and in a variety of different settings and job titles. They often serve in bridge roles, connecting clinical, operational, and administrative functions. These professionals affect the quality of patient information and patient care at every touchpoint in the healthcare delivery cycle.
Some of the typical/traditional roles include, but are not limited to:
Collecting and aggregating data
Analyzing and disseminating patient and aggregate clinical data
I believe each role is vital to the functioning of an efficient and effective manager. No two records are the same. Therefore, the manager must be detailed oriented and flexible in functioning between roles.
According to the University of Wisconsin, HIM will be completely paperless in the very near future. Future health information managers will need to be skilled in managing remote staff, including transcriptionist, scanners, indexers, data governance, usability and security of data.
Which one do I think will be the most challenging for you to implement and why? I have no experience in this field. I think to learn all the complex rules, regulations and complex requirements would be challenging for me.
What steps could I take to address this challenge? Continued research and education
