COMPARATIVE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT, 4th Edition, immerses students in the growing field of HIM. Chapters explore traditional and clinical settings, including hospitals, ambulatory clinics and medical offices, veterinary practices, home health, and correctional facilities, as well as emerging practice areas. Focused on managing and protecting the flow of information, this updated product introduces the health care system, then discusses care settings and associated HIM roles, infusing discussions with key terms, self-test questions, web links, and illustrations. Special features include case studies for problem-solving practice, and new “Professional Spotlight” vignettes.
