Designed for individuals who may or may not have experience within health IT, CAHIMS demonstrates professional knowledge in healthcare information and management systems to potential and current employers, and establish a solid foundation that will give you an advantage as you strengthen abilities, acquire more experience and advance your career path.
The CAHIMS Review Guide is the ideal resource for those preparing for the CAHIMS Certification Exam—or looking for a comprehensive ‘health IT 101’ guide. Content in the CAHIMS Review Guide reflects the CAHIMS exam content outline and is divided into three topic categories: organizational and technology environments; systems analysis, design, selection, implementation, support, maintenance, testing, evaluation, privacy and security; and leadership and management support. Each chapter includes learning objectives for tracking progress in understanding and articulating the content. Practice exam questions reinforce key concepts explored throughout the book. The CAHIMS Review Guide also features a glossary of acronyms used throughout the book for easy reference during exam preparation and ‘on the job’ reference after certification.
