Subject: Additional HIMR Comment Period Open, plus additional resources(Q&A, Webex recording)
Thank you to all that submitted comments in the comment periods that were open from June-August 31, 2016. Attached, you will find a summary of comment themes along with the responses to those most common comments. In addition, several recent Webex sessions were held with groups that submitted comments during the comment phase. We have posted the recording of the session that included a majority of the kinds of questions received so you can hear more detail on the discussion.
We ask that you read the attached Q&A document and listen to the recording (if you so desire) as these are intended to provide additional detail in a more concise fashion. We know and understand the HIMR White Paper is long and there is the temptation to read just the recommendations. In doing this, the important rationale and reasoning, along with references that informed these recommendations may be lost.
A final open comment period for HIMR is now open and will close on December 9, 2016. If there are specific recommendations in HIMR that you are not in agreement with, please provide suggestions that will support the continued relevance of the HIMR profession in the future given known and anticipated changes in technology, healthcare and education.
The primary change noted in the current draft version is in regard to the RHIT credential. Please see lines 242/243 and 665/666 for the proposed revision in this section. The final version of the HIMR white paper is now anticipated for the 1st quarter of 2017.
