Resources for Specific Healthcare Settings:
Principles of Health Information Management (HIM) are applied throughout the health care industry, including the various settings where healthcare is delivered, ranging from acute care hospitals to various post acute care settings. In addition, HIM principles are relevant in non-provider settings such as in health plans and in various healthcare software vendors for example.
Many HIM topics are fundamental regardless of the specific healthcare setting where they are employed. Thus the Resources presented on this website are organized by HIM topic
However there are HIM practices that are specific to a particular healthcare setting. The following information is provided to expand on those nuances. Visitors to the website are encouraged to investigate available resources both by topic and by setting, if the latter is applicable.
