needed to propel you forward – stronger and better than before.

Leave this program equipped with the tools you need to transform your mindset to think differently
about the future, conquer change and challenges and create the everyday resilience required in this

The focus of collection, access, management and sharing of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) is growing; evidenced
by public policy initiatives and robust engagement by many industry stakeholders. A new health information landscape is
evolving which requires thought, planning and careful coordination to best govern clinical and non-clinical data to promote
clinical decision-making, improve health outcomes, public health and health inequities. In this session, we will explore data
governance challenges and opportunities associated with organizations such as social service agencies and home and
community-based service providers.

Attendees will explore operational challenges and opportunities associated with collecting, managing and exchanging
social determinants of health data.
The audience will discover ways the health information professional can work to institute and encourage strong data
governance principles for robust clinical decision-making and to improve health outcomes.

A Realistic Approach to Achieving a 1% Duplicate Record Error Rate


Collecting patient demographics is the starting point to trusted, reliable data throughout the patient’s health journey.

For nearly two decades there has been a federal appropriations restriction prohibiting the Department of Health and
Human Services from spending any federal dollars to promulgate or adopt a unique health identifier.
In the meantime, health information professionals continue to contribute greatly in this space. Management of the master
patient index is vital to reducing and mitigating patient matching errors that may affect clinical care and interoperability.
In this session, we will discover approaches used today to achieve a low duplicate rate.

Attendees will examine various components to AHIMA's 2020 white paper on this topic.

The presentation will highlight areas for exploration to identify and recognize variability in databases, duplicate error
and creation rate calculations, workforce factors and types of patient matching algorithms which all play an important
role in achieving a low duplicate record error rate.

Discussion will be held about how the organizational goal checklist can be tailored to fit particular environments.

Shifting the Paradigm: Why HIM Should Lead the Charge on Interoperable Technology

Dan Wilson

As interoperability evolves with the creation of the 21st-Century Cures Act, it's time to throw out category
conventions. Historically, IT has owned the adjudication of selecting interoperable technology but now is the
time to evolve the process. IT does a great job at recognizing tech/API needs from a security standpoint, but
HIM owns privacy--which should be at the forefront of all interoperable conversations.

In this presentation, we will walk through how to properly value both security and privacy, recognize ways to
prioritize privacy to further innovation adoption, and identify resources every HIM department can effectively
implement to ease the process.

Best Practices to Create Policies and Procedures in Telehealth During the Pandemic and Beyond


During the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of telehealth to support contactless patient care has skyrocketed.
Though telemedicine has always been a long-term priority in healthcare, the pandemic forced it front and center.
However, telehealth poses unique challenges in ensuring patient-safety and privacy of health information. And
many hospitals have not yet developed standard policies and procedures to regulate telehealth within their
organizations. It is HIM's responsibility to build and maintain a plethora of new policies for telehealth services.
This session empowers HIM executives to create and update a universal standard for policies and procedures
in telehealth. Speakers provide guidance to develop best practices to address specific topics in telehealth including,
but not limited to documentation, the physician-patient relationship, maintenance, retention, release, and the
privacy of telehealth records.
