Research in the management of health information is critical for our profession. All professions engage in advancing the knowledge and evidence base of their specialties the health information management profession is no exception. For our practices to improve, with better outcomes for patients, better service delivery and high quality health information, there needs to be systematic investigation of problems, exploration of how things are done, whether those processes work, and how we can improve practice. There are enormous opportunities for all of us given the rapid developments in ehealth and communication and access to health information. Health Information Managers and Clinical Coders are in key positions to be actively engaged in research as part of a team or in leading projects related to investigating the management of health information. HIMAA has recognised the need to facilitate, support and encourage members of the profession in this endeavour and as such has established a Research Advisory Committee.
