It's All in the Data

Quality Care Through Story-telling.  Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week is March 24 - 30!

This year marks the 30th annual HIP week! This week provides an opportunity to showcase the thousands of Health Information Management (HIM) professionals who perform their duties masterfully throughout the year. This year's theme is It's All in the Data – Quality Care Through Storytelling. Health Information is more than just data – it's a shared language connecting front line caregivers to people. A language for telling the health stories of Canadians, stories that help Canadians trust in the care they receive. HIM at its core is all about maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of personal health information within four key domains of practice: Data Quality, Privacy, eHIM and Health Information Management standards. The HIM profession plays a vital role in providing quality care to Canadians!

Let's take a closer look at the important role Health Records Clerks play at HPHA!

Health Records clerks at HPHA are responsible for the accurate and timely processing of hard copy clinical records including reconciling visits, assembly, analysis, scanning and correct verification of inpatient, day surgery, ER and outpatient clinic records. Their duties also include retrieval of hard copy charts, incomplete record deficiency identification and physician notification, distribution of printed reports, records retention and destruction duties, Registration and Switchboard coverage duties, and completion of release of information requests to care providers, patients, WSIB and lawyers in accordance with PHIPA and HPHA policies.

Did you know?

In 2018, 9,782 inpatient and 95,836 outpatient records were reconciled, assembled and scanned into the electronic health record!
