Health information management is a fascinating set of professional disciplines, roles, and functions that revolve around information about current and former patients in the health care system. The tasks are as diverse as collecting, organizing, codifying, analyzing, and protecting information that is critical to effective and efficient health care delivery. The survey of AHIMA members completed in 2002 as part of AHIMA’s landmark work force study was an important lens through which to view and understand this important field.
