Research Papers Collection

The Medical Records Pals Malaysia Research Papers Collection listed below is a collection of full text (in pdf format) Research Papers appearing in journals, which are primarily concerned with the research interests that explore theoretical and practical problems associated with broadly defined areas of health information management / medical records management.

This personal collection consists of health information management / medical records management associated / linked Research Papers from 2009 to the present. This collection will be updated periodically from my personal collection.

It is my fervent hope that these Research Papers will become an important forum for the discussion of research results and a source of original ideas.

It is also my hope that these Research Papers will stimulate a culture for research in health information management / medical records management.among Health Information Management (HIM) / Medical Records (MR) practitioners in Malaysia specifically and among HIM / MR practitioner readers of this website-blog outside Malaysia.

IHMIA Organising a World of HIMInternational leaders and renowned speakers from the Health Information Management (HIM) sector will present the most recent advances in HIM to HIM professionals from around the globe when they congregate to learn, to exchange experiences and to develop enduring friendships when the International Federation of Health Information Management (IFHIMA) holds its flagship event – its 18th international conference in Tokyo Japan, from October 12 to October 14, 2016.

In preparation for this congress, IFHIMA has produced an article by Ms Lorraine Fernandes as the regional IFHIMA director for the Americas, on the subject “IFHIMA – Organizing a World of HIM”. This article was first published in the April 2016 issue in the Journal of the American Health Information Management Association (JAHIMA). The article provides an overview about IFHIMA, its purpose, structure as well as benefits for its members, and information about the IFHIMA 2016 congress including content that explores Tokyo as a tourist destination.

Readers of this website-blog can follow this link (this link will open in a new tab of your current browser window) to get access to the article. I wish to express my gratitude to Ms Angelika Haendel, President of IFHIMA and DVMD board member of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany for kindly sharing with me as an IFHIMA member, this link.

I also like to congratulate Ms Lorraine Fernandes – who according to Ms Anegelika Haendel, who had first raised the idea to write this article, then organised and lead the group of authors which enabled it to be published in JAHIMA, and who also painstakingly secured AHIMA’s permission to share this article with the international HIM community.
