Healthcare documentation specialists are positioning themselves as key players in the changing healthcare documentation industry.  A roulette wheel of new job roles is emerging, including applications analysts, physician practice consultants, document quality representatives, provider trainers, and even “healthcare documentation ninjas.”  Panelists will discuss these new and emerging roles and provide strategies for increasing the chances of success.      

The panelists will discuss the following key points:
  • Challenges facing healthcare documentation specialists and their employers.
  • Opportunities for the healthcare documentation workforce to transition into new roles.
  • Review of training and education involved with making the transition to new roles.
  • Overcoming barriers to workforce development.
