Gathering statistical data is an important part of assessing how effective health information technology is in healthcare organizations. As an HIM professional, you are charged with the task of looking at performance data and providing data to support leadership for improving standards in the organization. The statistical data provided regarding data collection, storage, and productivity are key in explaining the value of EHR technology in a healthcare organization.
Felder Community Hospital has just gone live with their new electronic health record (EHR). The hospital is experiencing issues associated with implementing new technology in an HIM department. As an HIM professional, you have been given the task of reviewing workflow and compiling data to show how processes within the department have changed since the EHR has been implemented. There are three functions that are being assessed: release of information, coding, and record retention.
You will use the data provided in the attached “Felder Post-Implementation Assessment” from sample manual service logs, policies, and reports to provide statistical data to the HIM manager and key stakeholders regarding the status of the department post-implementation.
