    why is it important for the HIM professional to have an understanding of the legislative process and the laws affecting healthcare?

    • Chris Conover says:

      For better or for worse, government at all levels is increasingly involved in health care. They are making laws and regulations that affect health IT, so knowing something about the process and law can help HIM professionals play a role in ensuring that policymakers don’t enact misguided policies. Too often, well-intentioned policies have adverse unanticipated consequences.
