9780721683539: Introduction to Health Information Technology (Book with Web site Passcode)

This introductory textbook addresses the basic information and skills that are essential to Health Information Technology (HIT). Material presented in the text is designed to reflect the core competencies defined by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), focusing on the practical aspects of health information technology. Each chapter deals directly with national, work-based skills and takes the reader from basic knowledge to practical applications at every step. It serves as an excellent link between the basic foundations such as what is contained in a health record, and the more advanced topics such as how to abstract the contents of a health record for coding purposes.

  • Focuses on the practical aspects of health information technology with a clear, simple writing style and concrete descriptions of key concepts related to health information/medical records.
  • Goes beyond coverage of "paper-based medical records" to include discussions of electronic health records.
  • Test Your HI-Q review questions test readers' comprehension and help them evaluate their mastery of the chapter.
  • Professional Profiles offer concrete examples of jobs that utilize the knowledge or skills discussed in each chapter.
  • Applications outline brief situations related to the topics discussed, followed by related questions that challenge readers to think critically and apply what they've learned to the scenario.
  • A companion SIMON website supports the book with online updates, additional information on chapter content, resources, and web links.
  • A student workbook is also available that provides additional exercises and examples that reinforce key concepts and encourage students to put their knowledge into practice.
