The American Health Information Management Association’s (AHIMA) 86th Convention and Exhibit was held September 27 – October 3 in the San Diego Convention Center, and Health IT Outcomes editor John Oncea had the opportunity to speak with a wide range of attendees.
Oncea was able to speak with AHIMA members and presenters about everything from the effective management of health data, to the need for medical records to deliver quality healthcare to the public, to electronic documentation and health record management. In addition, several of healthcare’s leading vendors shared how technology is enabling HIM professionals better manage the ICD-10 transition, save health systems millions of dollars, achieve HIMSS Level 7, and achieve favorable electronic health record (EHR) implementations.
Chris Spring, VP, solutions management for M*Modal was on hand to talk about tech enabling customers to help solve problems in coding, specifically the fast, secure transfer or records through the cloud. Basically, taking your records and - in a secure way - dropping them into a workflow system so M*Modal workers can immediately work on and return them in a timely manner.
