Databases are a huge part of our daily work as Health Information Management professionals. Whether we realize it or not, they’re behind everything from service and diagnosis code selection in an EHR, to denials tracking and trending, to the Master Patient Index at your local hospital. So, how do they work? What makes a database accurate, efficient, and clean? Join us as we discover how even something as technical as a database can be beautiful.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will:
- Recognize what elements are critical in a successful database
- Understand why databases are important and how they are used in day-to-day HIM tasks
- Explore the basic analytical capabilities of common programs such as Microsoft Excel and Access
