The healthcare industry is balancing the need to provide quality care while reducing costs and managing population health. To do this effectively, healthcare organizations are becoming more reliant on the optimal gathering, analysis, and use of health information. The 89th AHIMA Convention and Exhibit, October 7‒11, 2017, in Los Angeles, CA, will explore the many ways health information professionals must inspire, innovate and lead their organizations into the future of health data analytics, informatics, and information governance.
Each year, the convention offers interactive educational presentations, panel discussions and open forums to discuss how information can be transformed into a strategic asset for healthcare purposes. Today’s healthcare system requires the use of information for many purposes: to inform decisions on patient treatment plans, staffing levels, quality reporting, reimbursement, financial planning, and population health management. Information is shared not only within a healthcare system, but now also across the healthcare eco-system and with patients.
