Health Information Managers: Foundation of Risk Management
You started as the new HIM Manager a couple of weeks ago. Your department began using workflow technology about 2 months ago with an imaging system that has been used for 1 year. With the implementation of workflow, the department started coding and analyzing charts online. One of the first things that you noticed when you started work was the stress level of the coders – they are panicking. When you meet with them, both as a group and independently, you find out that they hate the new system. They say they do not feel comfortable using it, they only had a short training period, and they were not involved in the selection or the implementation.
