What is Health Information Management and why is it important?

Health information management (HIM) is the practice of acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care.

Health information management professionals bridge roles, connecting clinical, operational, and administrative functions. Our HIM professionals at DMHC affect the quality of patient information and patient care at every touchpoint in your health care delivery cycle. Having skilled HIM professionals on staff ensures our organization has the right information on hand when and where it is needed while maintaining the highest standards of data integrity, confidentiality, and security.

DMHC’s HIM professionals are highly trained in the latest information management technology applications and understand the workflow in any health care provider organization from large hospital systems to the private physician practice. They are a vital part of the daily operations management of health information and electronic health records.
