2:00 PM - 3:00 PMThe New Role of HIM In a Pandemic World and Beyond


It is often difficult for HIM professionals, deeply immersed in the trenches of change, to rise above day-to-day
demands and envision and develop new opportunities. But that’s exactly what needs to happen. When faced
with the ambiguity of change, the surest way to succeed is to fully engage in driving it. Only through this proactive
effort will HIM be able to redefine its role to better support emergency response and deliver greater value in
tomorrow’s post-COVID environment.

This session examines a new paradigm for Health Information and Records Management (HIRM) and provides
practical guidance to help HIM professionals support new virtual care delivery models and remote workforces,
offload the burden of low-value production work and lead the transition from traditional records management
to an optimized Information lifecycle management management model. Leveraging these compelling insights,
HIM professionals can establish a clear connection between their expertise and the organization’s ability to
improve care delivery, reduce costs and advance the management and use of information to optimize emergency

Clinical Validation Denials Management and Prevention

Robin Sewell, CCS CDIP CPC CIC

No matter how robust the clinical documentation integrity (CDI) program, there are still payer denials. Payer audits become more creative and voluminous each day. Just when we think we have a handle on the top clinical validation targets, more are quick to take their place. In addition to that, different payers often apply separate criteria. This presentation provides the revenue cycle team strategies to navigate amidst so many moving targets and tactics to crush clinical validation denials.
