Webinar on Demand: Best Practices for Implementing an Information Governance Program

CHIA Product Code: WEB153
Webinar Date: January 23, 2019


Program Description
AHIMA defines information governance (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." AHIMA’s five (5) level Information Governance Adoption Model (IGAM) and IGHealthRate tool has assisted health care organizational efforts to improve performance by supporting IG programs from startups to existing IG programs.


Although AHIMA has discontinued their IGHealthRate tool, this webinar will focus on best practices from two organizations on different IG journeys; one just starting their IG journey, and one with a mature IG program. The presenters will provide insights into the following:

  • Pain points and challenges,
  • Executive sponsorship,
  • IG structure, and
  • Accomplishments


Who Should Attend
HIM Directors, HIM Supervisors, Compliance Staff, Information Technology Staff.
