    My name is Donna Kim, and I'm currently enrolled in an online HIT program at Santa Barbara City College, pursuing an RHIT degree.
    I am taking an introductory Health Information Management class, and I have been assigned to interview a HIM Director at an acute care center. Since I am taking the online course overseas, I am not able to visit a local site and was wondering if there was anyone here in the online forum who can help me. Having the interview would really help me to learn what a HIM professional does realistically in a work setting than learning by just textbook alone!

    I need to find out more detailed answers related to the following 5 questions:

    Describe how the department organized is organized:
    Briefly describe the following, including any applicable software applications:
    Describe the health record:
    Explain the health record retention policies
    What are the confidentiality, privacy and security policies and procedures of the facility/department?

    Please email me if you can find time for the interview!
    I greatly appreciate it, and if possible with you, I can skype or video chat. It would really help me a lot!

    I have also attached the complete questions.

    Thank you!

    Donna Kim
