QuadraMed Celebrates Health Information Professionals Week
Our Future is Bright
Plano, TX—QuadraMed Healthcare Identity Experts, a division of Harris Healthcare, is celebrating health information management (HIM) professionals as part of the 29th annual Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week taking place March 18–24, 2018. This year’s theme is “Our Future Is Bright.”
According to Rick Greenblatt, VP, Sales & Marketing, “The week’s focus on health information management professionals offers an opportunity to say thank you to the men and women who help keep our data inline to ensure the right patient is receiving the right treatment at the right time. It’s also an opportunity to advocate for better tools to protect both patients and staff from potential errors.” Throughout the week, organizations such as the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) will take to Washington, D.C. with events aimed at promoting information governance, privacy and security.
Letha E. Stewart, MA, RHIA, Director, Customer Relations, shares “Oftentimes, when we think about health information management professionals, we think first of those collecting information directly from patients and then of some techie hunched over a computer in a dark hospital basement. I’m really encouraged to be with QuadraMed—to know that the company recognizes health information management takes place at multiple touchpoints and with multiple people participating—from patients to registration staff to folks like myself. That’s why the work we do to help keep the patient index aligned is so important.”
QuadraMed will be celebrating #HIPWEEK18 in person at the Ohio Health Information Management Association (OHIMA), the largest of all state HIM shows. Come see us at booth #44. Ms. Stewart will also be presenting “Duplicate Medical Records…What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You” (Session 4B @ 2:45PM).
In honor of HIP Week, QuadraMed will be providing HIP swag to any healthcare organization registering for a Lunch-N-Learn between now and March 30th. Visit QuadraMed’s HIPWeek to learn more.
