At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to meet the following 2014 AHIMA Curriculum Map for the Health Information Management Baccalaureate Degree.
General Information: The Bluegrass Community Hospital is moving to a new facility in five months. The new facility will include opening an outpatient/same day surgery department. The OP/SDS department will operate from 6:30 AM through 5:30 PM Monday through Friday. It is estimated that the annual number of inpatient admissions will decrease by approximately 8%. It is expected that there will be an average of 36 OPD/SDS patients seen on a daily basis. Approximately 50% of these patients will have been in the hospital previously. Administration has asked that you create a staffing plan to determine how many employees your department will require; you do not have to determine how many additional employees you must hire in addition to your current workforce.
The current 24,798 (4 years active) charts are currently filed in folders in terminal digit order on open shelving units. It will be necessary to initially house all current records in the department and new filing units will be purchased. Records older than 4 years are microfilmed (microfiche) by an outside company and stored in the HIM department.
Concurrent with the move, existing records will be scanned into an electronic document management system (EDMS) as patients are readmitted. After 4 years, the remaining medical records will be microfilmed per current policy. Medical records of readmitted and new patients will be stored in hard copy until completed and then scanned into the EDMS. Current bylaws required that records be completed within 30 days of discharge.
You need to determine the volume of anticipated daily scanning and recommend purchase of a scanner. Your proposal should compare the features for at least 2 scanners and include your recommendation. Administration has not specified a budget for this purchase, but asked that you be cost-conscious whenever possible.

1) type of professional development needs and justification
2) employees who need professional development
3) why professional development is needed and ramifications if professional development needs are not met
