Why health information matters: HIMAA conference 2021
St Vincent's Hospital emergency doctor and former AMA vice president Stephen Parnis is headlining the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) annual conference next week, discussing why health information matters in a time of pandemic.
Dr Parnis will be joined by Victoria’s chief digital health officer, Neville Board, and Australian Digital Health Agency CEO Amanda Cattermole.
The clinical coding section of the conference will hear from Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) acting technical manager Heon Lee on what to expect in AR-DRG Version 11.0. IHPA’s classification manager for acute care classifications James Katte will discuss the next steps for the ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS 12th edition.
For HIMs, one of the headline presentations is from La Trobe University’s Kay Bonello, who will look at the implementation status of EMRs in Victorian public hospitals.
Mater Health Service’s senior information management specialist for central and north Queensland Kathleen Rogers will discuss how to maintain siloed patient record integrity when bringing three patient administration systems into one viewing platform.
HIMAA’s virtual-only conference will be held from October 25 to 28. Registrations are still open.
