COMPARATIVE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT, 4e immerses students in the growing field of HIM and its many career paths. Chapters explore traditional and clinical settings, including hospitals, ambulatory clinics and medical offices, veterinary practices, home health, long-term care, and correctional facilities, as well as emerging practice areas such as consulting and cancer registry. Focused on the challenges of managing and protecting the flow of information across sites, this updated text starts with an induction to the health care system, then progresses through care settings and associated HIM roles, infusing discussions with key terms, self-test questions, web links, and illustrations that add meaning to concepts. Special features include case studies for problem-solving practice, and new “Professional Spotlight” vignettes that highlight actual professionals in their HIM careers.
