If so, do you ever get asked by a family member or friends to help them understand a medical term, take care of an important medical document, or make a decision involving their medical care.
The authors of this presentation believe that the skills and qualifications of health information management professionals help make us uniquely qualified to help others. As a result, we would like you to consider responding to our survey and let us know if you have helped someone. If you have, then would you share an example of how you provided assistance.
