AHIMA - Information Governance

Leading Information Governance for Healthcare

AHIMA - Information Governance

There are compelling reasons for implementing Information Governance (IG) across all industries, but healthcare’s needs for managing, controlling, and ensuring integrity of information, are emphasized by the nature of the services provided and the unique challenges faced. In addition, IG in healthcare is critical to meeting the triple aim of quality care for the individual, population health, and lowering the per capita cost of healthcare. It’s also critical to ensuring that healthcare information can be trusted. As the leader in health information management (HIM) for over 85 years, IG for healthcare is well aligned with AHIMA’s strategic initiatives.

AHIMA believes the time has come for the healthcare eco-system to adopt governance of information. Trust in health information depends on it.
