Jumpstart Your IG Plan
This webinar series is designed to provide guidance to HIM professionals to jumpstart their IG plan within their organization. The initial webinar will be an overview of basic Information Governance (IG) concepts and a large healthcare system will provide an overview of their current IG plan and progress.
Between webinars, participants will have assigned homework such as performing a gap analysis, development of an IG strategy and identifying IG projects. The webinar series will run for six months and the final five months will give participants the opportunity to share successful IG implementation examples, learn from peers and resolve barriers to current IG strategy issues.
Dependent upon total number of participants and breakdown of participants by size or type of healthcare organization employer, internal groups will be assigned starting with webinar two and at least two participants are expected to provide case studies based on completion of homework assignments between each webinar. Individual or group presentations are acceptable.
