HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT C
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will explore the functions of health information and its underpinning technologies in the contexts of system and organisational governance for patient and client safety. The purpose of the subject is to develop students' understandings of the multi-level management and applications of health information for quality of care and service infrastructure: individual patient information as evidence of care provided; aggregated data measuring and describing the structure, processes and outcomes of care; documentation pertaining to diagnostic and therapeutic decisions and procedures; and coded data for review and monitoring of patient safety. There are case-based foci on digital health, health information and technology governance; the impacts of organisational, clinical and managerial information-related actions, systems and security on clinical risk and quality management; and healthcare accreditation information and system requirements.
