    Good Afternoon,

    I am posting to see if there is any HIM managers that would be able to help me out, by providing a little insight information about HIM. I am currently a enrolled at Indiana Tech in the HIT program and we have been given an assignment to interview or get in contact with and HIM manager or director though phone, email, or face to face. We are to ask them questions we had crated from a previous weeks assignment. So far i have had not the greatest luck in finding such person to do so. In turn was directed here and told i might have better luck here to possibly get some answers.I have provide the questions i am hoping to have answered. Any help or information that can be given is deeply appreciated. thanks in advance.


    1)            First thing I would like to know is in your experience how much has the Healthcare evolution changed?

    2)            Interviewer: In addition, a study of 1,000 physicians by the MPI Group found that nearly 70% of physicians say the current electronic medical record (EMR) systems have not been worth it and most physicians do not believe the current systems often leave hospitals and patients with nothing more than EMR band-aids, is that something you can agree or disagree with? And why

    3)            Interviewer:  How do you see the use of an electronic health record EHR improve the accuracy of documentation?

    4)            Interviewer:  What disadvantages with confidentiality do you feel are associated with the EMR?

    5)            Interviewer: With the continued advancement of electronic health records (EHRs), there is increasing concern that a potential loss of documentation integrity could lead to compromised patient care, do you agree or disagree with these potential concerns?

    6)            Interviewer:  Documentation templates can play an important role in improving the efficiency of data collection, ensuring all relevant elements are collected in a structured format. However templets have limitations can you explain some of these limitations and the effect they would have on the data collection?

    7)            Interviewer: The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) noted in medical office practice brief that speech recognition can improve and enhance clinical documentation in many ways, In your own opinion do you feel it will improve the clinical documentation 

    8)            Interviewer: Physicians who have implemented voice recognition software found benefits such as being able to conveniently and quickly record patient histories, physical examinations, progress notes, consultations, and discharge summaries. What are some other benefits you see coming from this software that are important and why are they important?

    9)            Interviewer: What security and privacy features do current EHR systems have?

    10)          Interviewer: are the EHR users trained in security and privacy issues?
