Cengage Learning, Sep 11, 2007 - Medical - 408 pages
Created especially for Health Information Management students, this worktext helps to bridge the gap between content knowledge and actual on-the-job HIM principle application. Case Studies in Health Information Management scenarios are based on actual HIM situations and demand thought and action in order to answer the questions. This critical-thinking approach will help you move from classroom theory to real-life application and analysis of concepts.
