Instructor’s Manual

Chapter 1

Introduction to the HIM Profession

Lesson Plan

Background and Instructional Delivery

Every HIT student should be introduced to the HIM profession, the history of the profession, the driving forces for the development of the profession, the importance of the professional organization (AHIMA), and what it means to be a professional.

 

The beginning of this chapter presents a historical overview of the profession and lets the student know that they are becoming a member of a profession that has a long and rich history and was developed by a remarkable group of individuals who were committed to quality and to upholding patient confidentiality. While “history” may seem boring to some, the instructor can effectively introduce this topic in an upbeat way by showing students that they are joining an elite group of individuals.

 

It is important for HIT students to recognize that the profession is constantly evolving and that job skills must continually be updated. Therefore, the second part of the chapter talks about the evolution of practice. While many students may go on to entry-level jobs that still are at a level of traditional practice, HITs must recognize that in the next decade many of their jobs (if not most of them) will transition to a more data-oriented focus.  To introduce the concept of change in general, have students make a list of changes that they have seen in the last five years. For example, did all people have smartphones five years ago that included digital pictures and Internet connectivity? Did the iPad exist five years ago? Instructors can then use the Theory into Practice case as a point for providing a discussion about how the profession is changing.

 

The chapter concludes with an “upbeat” focus, introducing the student to today’s professional organization. An important part of this section is to have the student understand the importance of the role of the professional association in promoting the professionalism of its members, particularly through program accreditation and individual certification. If you are using a classroom with an Internet connection, go on live to the AHIMA website and guide the students through the site, stressing how AHIMA and the profession are prominent within the healthcare community.
