Standards for Health Information Governance
American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has been leading the development of best practices and guidelines for health information management (HIM) as a part of a new globally-focused AHIMA initiative on Information Governance (IG). The IG initiative provides an organization-wide framework for managing information throughout its lifecycle, while, supporting the organization’s strategy, operations, regulatory, legal, risk, and environmental requirements.
AHIMA and the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) defined methodology for aligning HIM practices with the capabilities of Health IT (HIT) products to support these practices through interoperability standards—a systematic approach for specifying business and functional requirements for HIM practices via use cases in order to validate existing HIT standards. This webinar provides an overview of the AHIMA-IHE collaborative approach to support implementation of Health Story Project applications and enabling IG practices in healthcare.

In 2008, the Health Story Project joined forces with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise USA (IHE USA) and the Office of the National Coordinator's Standards & Interoperability Framework to harmonize their work to produce the Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA) cited in Meaningful Use Stage 2. C-CDA is now the core of the United States' national agenda for interoperability.
