Overview

This introductory textbook addresses the basic information and skills that are essential to Health Information Technology (HIT). Material presented in the text is designed to reflect the core competencies defined by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), focusing on the practical aspects of health information technology. Each chapter deals directly with national, work-based skills and takes the reader from basic knowledge to practical applications at every step. It serves as an excellent link between the basic foundations such as what is contained in a health record, and the more advanced topics such as how to abstract the contents of a health record for coding purposes.
