HIM Briefings, February 1, 2009

And just because you may be in the midst of a massive EHR implementation project, these tasks—which also happen to be Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) requirements—certainly won’t go away.
In fact, the 2009 standards may pose unique challenges for hospitals with hybrid or fully electronic records, Kathleen Catalano, JD, RN, director of healthcare transformation support for Perot Systems, and Pat Brown, RHIA, vice president of HIM services and privacy officer for Pyramid Healthcare Solutions said at the October 12–15 80th annual AHIMA conference in Seattle.
