As the defining source of education and professional reference for health information management (HIM) programs at either the 2-year (Health Information Technology) or the 4-year (Health Information Administration) level, this book has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the vast technological changes in the field. This venerable text focuses on health data, how to collect, maintain, and use health data, and how to ensure the quality of data, while emphasizing the deployment of information technology and the role of the HIM professional in the development of the electronic health record.
This is a comprehensive text for the health information management profession, beginning with a historical review of healthcare delivery systems and the development of the HIM profession, and then building on the concepts of data as a resource, its transformation to information, and its future role in the computer-based patient record. Designed as a textbook, the focus is on four key areas: healthcare data; information management and use; management; and health information systems. It presents a fresh approach to today's fundamentals and future challenges of health information management practice. There is an emphasis on quality in practice throughout the text. Designed for health information management students and practitioners, it presents the expanded scope and domains of health information management practice today and in the future. It also informs other health professionals (administrators, information systems professionals, researchers) about the role of health information management professionals. The contributors represent the specialties of health information management, public health, and community medicine. The book is organized into six major sections. Each chapter begins with an outline, key words, abbreviations defined, and objectives. A glossary provides definitions of all keywords. There is a detailed table of contents and alphabetic index. Many two-color illustrations include tables, charts, examples of forms, and highlights of important points. The most useful point is that the book is accompanied by an assignment workbook, review manual, electronic test bank, and instructor's manual, which are outstanding. This extensive text for the health informationmanagement profession will probably become a classic for all educational programs in the field. It provides a much-needed update of the evolving field, stressing data and the technology, systems, and requirements to transform it to quality information essential to the future computer-based patient record. There is a great deal of material here, which some students may find overwhelming. The last chapter presents viewpoints of future health information management issues, written by experts, to stimulate discussion.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care) Description: The is both a textbook and reference for the health information management (HIM) professional. Healthcare data, information management and use, management, and health information systems are the four keys areas of the profession on which the book focuses. The chapters also address areas that are frequently the responsibility of health information managers such as risk management, legal issues, and financial management. This is the second edition. Purpose: Designed as a textbook for health information administration and technology students, this book can also be used by both the new professional and seasoned practitioner. The scope and domain of health information management practice and the role of the health information manager are described, as is the role of health information in the delivery of quality healthcare. Audience: The primary audience includes students and faculty in health reformation educational programs at both the bachelor and associate degree levels. The secondary audiences are health information management professionals working in the healthcare industry and related businesses. The four editors are experienced educators in well-respected health information programs. The 21 contributing authors include HIM educators and practitioners with a wide variety of knowledge and skills. Features: The five major section in which the book is organized are Foundations of Health Information Management, Health Care Data, Data Management and Use, Management, and Information Systems. A study guide is provided with pre-test and chapter review questions, 100 assignments, case studies, group exercises, and field experience activities. A CD-ROM included with the Study Guide has additional assignments and questions. The Instructor's Manual has answers to the assignments, educational tips, a Power-Point image library, and a large test bank of questions and answers. Assessment: Every health information administration and technology educational program must include this as a primary textbook. The Study Guide provides students with various assignments and questions to strengthen their learning experience. Teacher will find the Instructor's Manual a valuable resource with a wealth of materials to make their job easier. This book can be used in several HIM courses over the course of two or more years. Some of the educators in associate degree HIM programs considered the first edition "too advanced" for their students. I encourage these educators to take another look at this book as it is relevant for all HIM professionals. The book's value does not end at graduation, as it can be used as a reference by graduates as they begin their professional career. Any individual attempting to return to HIM practice should buy and read this book cover to cover to catch up with what they might have missed during their time away from the profession..
