The leadership role of the health information management professional in research.

Abstract

Research and its role in the health information management (HIM) field are discussed in the context of the priorities and research needs of the Health Security Act of 1993 and Healthy People 2000. Research needs from Healthy People 2000 specific to the HIM field are outlined. Questions to ask when the research proposal, study designs, methodologies, and examples specific to HIM are formulated are explained and discussed so that HIM professionals can become leaders in the field of HIM research.
