Identify an acute care facility and a non-acute health care facility in your area. Arrange to
speak to the health information management professional at each facility and discuss the
challenges they feel they face in collecting data, the type of data they are responsible for
collecting, what their job duties are, and what type of patients they provide care. Assess and
relate the outcome of the interview to the material explored in the Readings.
- Compare and contrast the data collected in acute care facilities with the data collected in non-acute care facilities.
