Hire a Health Information Management Student!
Summer is often a time to ‘catch up’ on outstanding projects. It can also be a time to prepare for programs for the fall.
Summer students can help you with jobs like archiving patient records, preparing data to move to a new EMR, setting up a new on-line appointment booking program, or implementing panel management for your practice.
Health Information Management Program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT)
The role of health information management goes beyond managing health records to managing the information contained in those records. Using computer skills and knowledge of healthcare fundamentals, critical medical information is translated from patient health records into data following national data standards. The health information management professional then interprets the data to provide comprehensive quality information for patient care, resource allocation, statistics, research, planning and education.
