Overview

Created especially for Health Information Management students, this worktext helps to bridge the gap between content knowledge and actual on-the-job HIM principle application. Case Studies in Health Information Management scenarios are based on actual HIM situations and demand "thought" and "action" in order to answer the questions. This critical-thinking approach will help you move from classroom theory to real-life application and analysis of concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This is a case study workbook for health information management (HIM) educators and students. The 240 comprehensive case studies are designed to provide both associate degree and bachelor degree students in HIM with an opportunity to solve a variety of HIM problems.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide HIM educators and students with a case study book that is based on real-life HIM scenarios that require thought and problem-solving skills to address. Each case brings readers into the HIM setting and asks them to consider all of the variables that influence the information management situation. According to the authors, the case study book is a transitional tool to help students in "bridging the gap" between content knowledge and on-the-job performance.
Audience: The authors are HIM educators and practitioners who are well aware of what is needed in the classroom to prepare future HIM practitioners. The book is written for students in the two-year associate degree program preparing to write the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination or the student in the four-year bachelor degree program preparing to write the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) examination. The book is written for a traditional classroom or online course; I do not envision the book to be very useful for independent study.
Features: The cases are grouped into parts based on seven major HIM topics: health data management; clinical classification systems and reimbursement methodologies; statistics and quality improvement; healthcare privacy, confidentiality, legal and ethical issues; information technology and systems; management and health information services; and project and operations management. The case study questions are written so that students cannot simply look up an answer in a textbook, but must use knowledge gained through various courses to solve the problem. True-to-life scenarios including actual forms, codes, and documents are used to describe the HIM scenario. An online instructor's manual is available with word files that can be changed by instructors to meet their individual classroom needs and a complete set of answers to each of the case studies. Also available is "Case Studies for Health Information Management on DVD" as a five program series for applying critical thinking skills to real events and situations that occur in the workplace. The program aligns with the HIM curriculum domains and includes 20 case studies for review and discussion.
Assessment: I suspect HIM faculty will find this is a welcome addition to the resources available for teaching health information management. I know of no other case studies books on the market designed specifically for health information management students. The case studies are realistic and the practical exercises range from less difficult to challenging. This is a book that requires student-teacher interaction with the student solving the problem and the teacher reviewing the "answers" with the student as I imagine the authors created the book for the classroom setting. However, I do think the book could be used by a practicing HIM director or manager in a HIM department. The case studies could be used for in-service education for staff or management discussions, as interview questions for potential management hires, or to provide problem-solving practice for HIM students on assignment in the department for clinical practice. The book is creative, thought provoking and well written.

    Just an awful book! The author requests that students access websites to complete many of the assignments, but these websites are frequently removed or unable to be located. Directions for the exercises are frequently confusing. Just a exercise in frustration!
