Precyse Recognizes Health Information Management (HIM) and Health Information Technology (HIT) Colleagues and Professionals during HI&T Week, November 6-12, 2011
Wayne, PA and Alpharetta, GA Nov 6, 2011 — Precyse, a leader in health information management (HIM) technologies and services, partners with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and others in support and celebration of the 22nd Annual Health Information and Technology (HI&T) Week. This year’s theme is Accurate Health Information for Care YOU Trust. The health information management (HIM) and health information technology (HIT) colleagues and professionals who play an integral role in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare industry will be acknowledged throughout the United States during the American Health Information Management Association’s 22nd annual Health Information and Technology Week.
Evolution is a key word for this year bringing unprecedented changes to health information management as new technology, funding and policies have taken flight for the first time. Because of the numerous complexities within the current healthcare landscape—Meaningful Use, ICD-10, Regional Extension Centers, privacy and security, Health Information Exchange, and quality measures—the training and skill-sets of HIM and HIT colleagues and professionals is required for the efficient organization and management of health information. It is because of these colleagues and professionals that the healthcare industry will continue to grow and advance in patient care and safety.
The focus of Health Information and Technology Week is to raise awareness and celebrate the evolution of HIM and HIT colleagues and professionals, and the benefits of their profession working collectively to deliver quality healthcare through quality information.
“Our participation in HI&T Week underscores our commitment of taking care of the information that is taking care of patient lives,” said Chris Powell, President of Precyse. “Today more than ever, the role of technology in healthcare information is vital. By working together, Precyse’s people, processes and technology create solutions that drive healthcare actions, sparking innovation in healthcare information and driving healthcare actions that help providers improve revenue cycles, drive efficiencies, and manage clinical data. Our vision is to live in a world where all meaningful health information is available to help save time, money and lives.”
Precyse is proud to continue its support in this effort and in the progression of healthcare information services and technology as a Diamond Corporate Partner with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), whose main mission is to advance the HIM profession through educational programs, research, and funding for grants and scholarships for the next generation of HIM leaders. During this past week’s Company Town Hall, Powell congratulated Precyse colleagues throughout the country for their commitment to the HI&T industry.
