Editorial Reviews

Karen Patena
This is a comprehensive reference covering the basics of patient record and health information management. It is a revision of the 1994 edition. As with the original version, it begins with an introduction to the role of the health record, as well as the professionals responsible for its maintenance and protection. It covers use of record data in both paper and computer form, in both hospital and non-hospital settings. This book serves as a general reference to health information management for healthcare administrators, allied health professionals, and information systems professionals who need an overview of the record, its maintenance, and information use. Although it may be useful to instructors and students of health information management, it would seem more appropriate as a bookshelf reference for those health professionals in the work setting. It is written for healthcare administrators and health information professionals, as well as other practicing health professionals (for example, physicians' office staff) who need a good book to guide them in establishing a basic record system. The author continues to build on her excellent reputation in the health information management profession as an educator, consultant, and author. She is also President-Elect of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). This book is well organized and easy to search through, with a table of contents and index. There are excellent references at the end of each chapter. There are no illustrations, but important points and policies are offset in figures. There are two appendixes included, one with reprints of the resolutions of the AHIMA 1996 House of Delegates, coveringhighlights of the changing profession, and one of AHIMA published practice guidelines. The book is a nice, small reference size, with a soft cover. This book should prove to be as useful as the original, and now is useful to other healthcare settings as well as hospitals. Its updated guidelines for the use and maintenance of computerized records, and security and standards guidelines will make this a "must-have" reference as the profession enters the new millenium.
