Abstract

"The Health Information Management profession has a long history in Australia dating over 70 years. Traditionally, the profession has been associated with the two functions of paper-based medical records management and clinical coding. Now, a time of digital transformation and ongoing health reform requires the profession to strategically position itself from information technicians to information strategists, and demonstrate its ongoing important contribution to improving patient care and outcomes, and the effective management of health care."
