Real World Case Study

Learning Goal: I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

As consumers become more knowledgeable about healthcare matters, they seek access to more information about their own and their family members’ health and healthcare. The employer- and insurance-sponsored consumer-directed health plans also are encouraging patients to become more knowledgeable about health and healthcare. This trend affects health information management, as HIM professionals become not only patient advocates in the emerging electronic health information environment, but also knowledge and content experts related to consumer rights, needs, and modes of access to their personal health information. Although this changing model for engaging consumers in their healthcare and healthcare decision making is forecasted and signs of its emergence in practice are everywhere, just what form it will take is not clear. This lack of clear direction presents a real-life strategic challenge for HIM professionals who must consider plausible alternate future for engaging with consumers to serve their needs for access to health information and their electronic health records.
