Webinar on Demand: IG Web Series Part 2: Making the Case for Information Governance
CHIA Product Code: WEBIG2
Webinar Date: April 27, 2018
IG Web Series Description
The 2017-2018 CHIA Information Governance Committee is pleased to announce the Information Governance (IG) Web Series. This seven-part series will provide a foundation of valuable IG topics to HIM professionals. Utilizing AHIMA’s IG Training Kit, these informational webinars will increase your knowledge of IG.
AHIMA defines IG as “an organization wide framework for managing information throughout its lifecycle and for supporting the organization’s strategy, operations, regulatory, legal, risk, and environmental requirements.” Like other critical organizational assets—people, capital, inventory, etc.—information is a strategic asset that requires high level oversight to be able to effectively use it for organizational decision-making, performance improvement, cost management, and risk mitigation. Complementary to the traditional approach and practices of HIM, which is bottom up, IG ensures that information is trustworthy and actionable through alignment with organizational strategy and engagement of senior leaders and important stakeholders across the enterprise.
In an increasingly connected world, this extends outside the proverbial four walls of an organization to make sure that information is available in the right place and the right time to support health and health care. This IG Web Series aims to prepare HIM professionals to meet the growing demand.
Part 2 – Making the Case for IG
This presentation will provide you a base in the IG Principles for Healthcare, what support systems are used to implement IG programs and processes, and discuss why IG is important for healthcare. The presenter will be walking attendees through some of these base items and helping orient professional around the ideas at the heart of IG.
This program is approved for 1 CEUs by AHIMA, BRN, and AAPC for coding-related programs. HIIM Domain: Management Development
