Webinar: What is the Difference Between Health Informatics and HIM?

Health Informatics. HIM.

Educational tracks feature both disciplines, but what the heck’s the difference?  Leave it to the University of Illinois – Chicago (UIC) to take the initiative to help us distinguish between the two.  If you are unable to attend the AHIMA 2010 convention, please dial in to join UIC for a presentation hosted by UIC’s HIM Program Director, Karen Patena.  Karen will provide attendees with an overview of health informatics and HIM, and the differences between the two disciplines.  She will also speak about the UIC graduate level programs in this area of study.

Karen Patena has worked in hospital medical record management, as well as systems planning and implementation, for nearly 20 years. Recently, she served as a vital member of the team to implement a Cerner patient-care information system at the University of Illinois Medical Center. She is a frequent contributor to the Journal of AHIMA* and a regular presenter at the meetings of local, state and national health information management professional associations.
