A special shout-out to our Health Information Management (HIM) team at St. Joe’s, during their special week, National Health Information Professionals Week. HIM is an allied health profession which leads efforts to ensure the availability, accuracy, integrity, and security of all data related to patient healthcare encounters. This results in better clinical and business decisions that enhance healthcare quality. They play a key role in the effective management of health data necessary to deliver quality healthcare to the public.
We salute our HIM team here at St. Joe’s. Their work will not go un-noticed, particularly in the coming weeks and months, as the entire Covenant hospital system prepares for a transition to CareLink, which is the implementation of our transition to the EPIC platform for managing electronic medical records and revenue cycle. The eventual success of this colossal project will be due in no small part to the leadership of our dedicated HIM professionals, not only here at St. Joe’s but throughout Covenant Health.
