    I recently took a job as the HIM/Referrals Supervisor at a mid-size physician clinic. My background is in hospital and SNF settings, so I'm still figuring out the outpatient clinic setting. The department has gone through a period of some neglect and part of what I've been tasked with by my manager is updating workflows and revitalizing the department. My assessment is that HIM is being underutilized - they do very little more than scanning/importing records into the EHR. There are currently no processes for analysis, deficiency management, or CDI, and ROI is outsourced to a vendor. I would really like to connect with other HIM professionals who work in a clinic setting, especially a community health center or FQHC, to find out what responsibilities your departments have, productivity measures you track, and advice about how to build interdepartmental alliances to bring about process change.

    Thank you,
