Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: The book provides a comprehensive survey of health information management practices in a wide variety of healthcare settings with the focus on settings other than acute care hospitals. This is the second edition of a book first published in 1998.
Purpose: As more health care is delivered outside of the acute care hospital, health information managers are challenged to meet the unique information needs of the nontraditional settings. Most health information managers' original training focused on hospital settings. As more and more practitioners are finding themselves in nonhospital settings, a reliable reference that discusses the characteristics of these new arenas is needed. The purpose is to help health information managers and students prepare to meet these challenges.
Audience: The audience is two major groups. The first includes practicing registered health information technicians (RHIT) or administrators (RHIA) who are working in or moving into the nonhospital setting. The book would also be valuable to HIM managers in nonhospital settings who are in their positions without the benefit of formal HIM education. The second major group includes RHIT or RHIA students in health information educational programs. This could be a valuable textbook in a survey course.
Features: The first chapter is an introduction that describes the recent history of healthcare in the U.S. including the effects of changes on payment systems, regulatory and accreditation issues, the impact of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the evolution of the electronic health records. The remaining 15 chapters focus on a particular healthcare setting including hospital based ambulatory care, freestanding ambulatory care, managed care, dialysis, correctional facilities, mental health facilities, substance abuse treatment centers, facilities for individuals with mental retardation or developmental disabilities, long term care, rehabilitation, home healthcare, hospice, dental care settings, veterinary medicine and a final chapter on consulting in all settings. Each chapter follows a consistent outline: introduction to the setting, regulatory issues, documentation, reimbursement and funding, information management, coding, computer systems, quality and risk management, legal issues and trends. New in this edition are the changes in payment systems in the nonacute care settings. As an example, the book addresses risk-adjusted systems in managed care. The impact of HIPAA privacy and security of health information in a variety of settings is thoroughly addressed. Each chapter contains well-structured learning aids such as objectives, key terms, summary, review questions, web activity, and a case study.
Assessment: This is a one-of-a-kind book that puts reliable, practical information into the hands of health information managers who need to know the facts about managing health information in nonacute care hospital settings. It is a book that can be (or should be!) read cover-to-cover as a textbook in an education program. It is just as valuable to the practicing health information manager to read one or a couple of chapters to get up to speed on the unique characteristics of these alternative settings. The author has assembled an impressive group of contributors to share their expertise. You can't find this level of detail in many other books. For that reason, I highly recommend it as a valuable addition to your reference shelf.
