MS, Health Informatics and Information Management
Dr. Harris Publishes Book
Dr. Susie Harris, associate professor from the Department of Health Services & Information Management has a book publication, Managing Health Informatics and Services Operations. This book explores management skills and techniques for undergraduate healthcare students and entry-level professionals pursuing a career in the management of health information management (HIM) departments.
Unlike other HIM texts which focus on topical areas, this book focuses on the functions found in a health information department and the uniqueness of HIM within the healthcare industry.
Each chapter provides the theoretical foundation for a relevant topic and an applied learning experience that demonstrates a practical application. These include a real-world case study in each section as well as a mini-case study and exercises in each chapter.
Students will gain a solid foundation in management while recognizing the differences among healthcare environments, such as hospitals, community health centers, long-term care facilities, clinics, and medical offices.
