I agree, AHIMA is a terrific source.  There are also state health
information management associations that can speak to local concerns.  And
be sure to check with the state department of health, as they will have
rules and regs that must be taken into consideration.  If you have specific
questions, you may contact me off list.

Please visit the web site of the American Health Information Management
Association at where you will find an organization of 30,000+
members who manage records in health care facilities.  There is some
excellent information and links to several related groups.

Hello everyone

A Large hospital asked my institution for support regarding their records
management program and clinical records structure.

I've been browsing in the NET but, although i find a lot of material
regarding information managemen and IT issues, couldn't find anything
regarding records management implementation , case studies or hospitals
websites where there is info about their records management programs.
Does anyone knows of such websites?
