Health Information Management - HIM

Health Information Management - HIM is the management of personal health information in hospitals or other healthcare organizations enabling the delivery of quality healthcare to the public. The American Heath Information Management Association (AHIMA) defines Health Information Management (HIM) as "the study of the principles and practices of acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care". AHIMA goes on to state that "HIM is the link to clinicians, technology designers, and information technology; and is the value-adding bridge between patients’ health information and payors, government, and regulating agencies. HIM practitioners demonstrate leadership and management of health information in all formats (paper, scanned, or computerized forms), and are a critical component of the electronic health record (EHR) workforce".
