AHIMA's Green: Information governance establishing 'a toehold in healthcare'

A growing number of providers are seeing the value of information governance and making it a priority, according to Deborah Green, the American Health Information Management Association's executive vice president and chief innovation and global services officer.

Green, speaking with HealthData Management, said the results of AHIMA's latest survey on IG show that it "has established a toehold in healthcare."

The need for IG will be pushed by reimbursement changes and the need for data and information to deliver value, she said.

"Creating value and proving it will require strategic management of information in a business driven and holistic way--that is information governance. If organization leaders can be convinced that IG is a key to enabling the value of healthcare purchased, they will move to IG," Green said. Article
