Hospitals are becoming large data centers of health information. In some ways, they’ve always been the storage facility of health information, but how we store, transfer, access, and share health information is dramatically changing in our new digital world. Plus, the volume of information we collect and store is expanding dramatically. This is why health information governance is becoming an extremely important topic in every hospital.
In order to better understand what’s happening with health Information Governance, I sat down with Rita Bowen, Senior Vice President of HIM and Privacy Officer at HealthPort, to talk about the topic. We shot these videos as one long video, but then chopped them up into shorter versions so you could more easily watch the ones that interest you most. You can find 2 of the videos below and 3 more over on EMR and HIPAA.
