3M solutions for HIM directors
Meeting the challenges of health information mangement
Healthcare reform and disruptive technologies are changing the landscape of HIM. On one hand, the demands of ICD-10, EHR installations and pay-for-performance require your medical records team to manage increasing volumes of data and documents. On the other hand—fortunately—new technologies such as computer-assisted coding, natural language processing and speech recognition promise to streamline the way you compile and code records.
