AHIMA execs on HIPAA privacy rules, data integrity, governance in 2014

We sit down AHIMA's two top guns to discuss health data integrity and governance concerns, and what's hot at this year's 85th Convention and Exhibit.

ATLANTA -- The year 2014 is shaping up to be monumental for the health IT world, what with meaningful use stage 2 going into effect as well as ICD-10 going live Oct. 1. Health information managers play a crucial role partnering with IT staffs to ensure health data integrity and to lay out data governance plans that meet the needs of HIPAA privacy rules as well as accountable-care organization reporting requirements.

Here at the American Health Information Management Association's 85th Convention and Exhibit, we sat down with the association's president and board chair, Angela Kennedy, along with CEO Lynne Thomas Gordon. We discussed health data governance and the hot-button issues AHIMA plans to advocate in the coming year, including a national patient identifier.
