Local Service Delivery
A workforce with the credentials, knowledge and skills to work in a fully
electronic health information environment.
e-HIM® or Electronic Health
Information Management is
the process by which
electronic health records (both
institutional and personal) are
created, managed and
retained for both business and
legal purposes.
Why Do We Need to Change
• Overarching Trends:
o Shift to supporting, optimizing, and utilization of e-Health
technologies;
o Continued expansion of EHR repositories to inform clinical
decisions – data standards, data quality & information
governance becoming more critical;
o Health system use of data (information to change care
delivery) will expand & become more critical;
o Introduction of SNOMED CT coding into point of care
systems (i.e. Clinical Information Systems) and the need
for maintaining reference sets, data mapping, provider
education, monitoring data quality, supporting automated
coding, etc.;
Why Do We Need to Change
• Overarching Trends:
(Cont’d)
o EHR/EMR information sharing will be the norm; more
multi-disciplinary/multi-site teams, more integration with
other jurisdictions will create the need for more skilled
HIM Professionals in information management issues;
o Changes in professional practice for the electronic
environment;
o Increasing use of mobile and cloud computing;
o Increasing involvement of consumers in entering and using
health information (Personal Health Portal / Personal
Health Record);
o Increasing and diverse range of data quality and data
integrity issues;
Why Do We Need to Change
• Overarching Trends:
(Cont’d)
o Integration of new technologies into the healthcare
system;
o Clinical devices connected to EHR’s for direct input of
information;
o Use of Terminology Services and Taxonomies to support
clinic content;
o Increasing clinical and productivity benefits from existing
investments will create a demand for corresponding roles;
o Need to broaden the skills of current clinical professionals;
and
o Retirement of current professionals will be a challenge.

Major Objectives
• Care delivery is information enabled;
• Information is managed as an asset;
• Manual functions are automated to enable
electronic health information management, such as:
o Digitizing paper to electronic format;
o Automated coding from structured clinical documentation;
o Automated health record completion;
o Front-end and back-end speech recognition including e-Signature
of transcribed reports.
• Costs are decreased (burden in managing the paper
based and hybrid systems are significantly
reduced).
