White Papers

Elevating Clinical Documentation Integrity with Compliant Technology Adoption

Technology can make CDI better and simpler, reducing burden on physicians and improving patient care. AHIMA and 3M recently convened an expert panel of clinicians and CDI professionals to explore the future of technology and CDI.

Data Visualization in Healthcare: Enhancing Data Skills for the Next Generation of Professionals

In today’s data-driven world, data visualization helps analyze and share massive amounts of data and supports informed decision-making. With this in mind, the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and Tableau convened an expert panel of data analysts, educators, and visualization experts to explore the best practices of data visualization and develop a curriculum to train the next generation of health and healthcare professionals.

Best practices for clinical decision support

Enhanced clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) are becoming a critical part of the healthcare information technology landscape, enabling faster decision-making, enhancing efficiencies, and improving patient outcomes. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are transforming CDSSs, from burdensome platforms offering alerts that may not have value to intelligent workflows, supporting best practices based on relevant patient history in real time.

How technological advances in medical coding shape the patient experience

Coding and coding technologies have undergone a dramatic – and rapid – evolution. What began as a manual, paper-based process involving massive ICD-9-CM diagnostic and procedural code manuals, typewriters, and file folders have, in the span of a few short decades, transformed into a highly specialized digital cloud-based process bolstered by predictive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and natural language processing (NLP).
