Download the report prepared for The AHIMA Foundation and TrustHCS

We set out to determine the general stages of transition and development of these three important Health Information Management initiatives for health care providers from various facilities located throughout the US: The transition to the ICD-10 coding standard; the initiation and impact of clinical documentation improvement programs; and, the utilization of computer assisted coding solutions.

To a great extent, we succeeded in these aims. The “State of HIM” survey received information from over 300 HIM professionals representing all types of health care facilities in nearly every state. In this report, you will find a great deal of the information and observations that were gleaned from our independent research and analysis of the feedback gathered by the survey.
