Many healthcare organizations understand that information governance is important, but taking on IG initiatives can be difficult because of the perceived challenges. In this webinar, early adopters and IG leaders will discuss how they got started, highlighting best practices for conducting an internal audit of current record and information management practices, garnering stakeholder buy-in and consensus, and illustrating opportunities to improve policies and reduce costs.

Participants include:

Lori Jayne, MaineHealth, who will share how she positioned IG relative to overarching, mission critical initiatives within her organization, and secured the support of senior executives as a measure to build toward a best-of-breed program.

Cindy Zak, Yale New Haven Health, who will discuss how her understanding of the value of conducting an internal audit of records and information management practices and policies provided a roadmap to success and cost savings.

Linda Kloss, former CEO of AHIMA and now president of Kloss Strategic Advisors, who will moderate the discussion.

This is the first of a “Peer Perspectives” two-part webinar series; it will continue on April 24 with Part II, which will highlight best practices for IG execution. After registering for Part I, you will have the opportunity to automatically enroll for Part II.
