AHIMA Calls for Standardization to Unify EHR Use

The American Health Information Management Association is calling for improved and unified health information governance to standardize electronic health record usage among healthcare providers.

AHIMA believes standardization of EHRs will ensure technology fulfills its promise of guiding better, more efficient care. For this reason, it hopes to work with healthcare providers, health plans, quality organizations and vendors as well as HHS to establish standards so healthcare providers have clear principles to guide patient documentation, according to the release.

AHIMA will address health information governance at its 84th annual convention and exhibit, which begins today in Chicago.
