As the health information management (HIM) profession continues to expand and become more specialized, there is an ever-increasing need to identify emerging HIM workforce roles that require a codified level of proficiency and professional standards.
Professional regulation, standards, and universal competency levels for these new roles are often ambiguous at best, leaving employers and job incumbents alike searching for a legitimate measure of job competence.
A job analysis is the best tool to fully study and delineate these new workforce roles.
The job analysis can later be used to form the foundation for a certification examination designed to assess the competency level of those interested in pursuing this role.
The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM) explored one such role—clinical documentation improvement (CDI) practitioner—to define the tasks and responsibilities of the job as well as the knowledge required to perform them effectively.A random sample of 4,923 CDI-related professionals was surveyed regarding the tasks and knowledge required for the job.The survey data were used to create a weighted blueprint of the six major domains that make up the CDI practitioner role, which later formed the foundation for the clinical documentation improvement practitioner (CDIP) credential.To explore the business need for and feasibility of developing a new CDI credential, CCHIIM conducted a thorough needs analysis and idea brief outlining the business impact, strategic context (including industry trends and member/customer needs), value proposition, and sustainability of this exam.
The commission concluded that the exam would be a natural extension of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) offerings that support clinical documentation improvement, including CDI practice briefs, a CDI tool kit for healthcare organizations and professionals, a practice community, related educational resources, and in 2007, through its House of Delegates, an approved resolution on quality data and documentation in EHRs.
