Introduction

Health care managers in today’s modern environment need to understand the importance and role of health information management (HIM). This also includes an understanding of the professional needs to ensure the HIMs are compliant and operating in an efficient and effective manner. In this assessment, you will once again work with the interactive scenario at a fictional hospital system. You will be tasked with researching health information professionals, their job functions and abilities to help the organization maintain or improve their HIM systems. You will apply your research of health information professionals and their job functions to the scenario by creating and developing a job description that matches the organization’s needs. It is important for organizations to hire the right professionals to manage their health information systems ensuring that those professionals and their skills are in line with organizational goals.

In your career as a health care manager, it may become necessary to create specific job postings based on your organization’s staffing needs. One of those positions might be a health information manager or health IT professional. Understanding the duties and responsibilities of this job will enable you to recruit qualified candidates more effectively. Additionally, you will need to demonstrate the value of this position to the organization or relevant stakeholders. By improving your ability to advocate for your staffing and resource needs you will be better prepared to make convincing arguments for funding.

As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as a part of your assessment.

What are the specific job duties a new hire will need to perform with regards to EHR or HIM systems management? What kinds of training or certification are most desirable for an applicant? Why? What qualifications are required in similar job postings at other organizations?

Hint: Look online for similar job postings. How will you defend the need to fulfill the new HIM position with regards to meeting organizational needs and return on investment?

What evidence can you use to help support your defense?
