Winter 2017 Introduction

The Winter 2017 issue of Perspectives in Health Information Management features the latest research on topics such as mobile device security, development of a web-based diabetes registry, and the use of secure clinical texting to issue patient care orders.

The exploratory study, “Mobile Device Security: Perspectives of Future Healthcare Workers,” was designed to analyze the perceptions of mobile device security from the vantage point of future healthcare professionals. The authors surveyed current campus and online health professions students; the participants are future HIM professionals and therefore potential mobile device users in this capacity.

This issue also includes a study predicting the odds of success for students taking the RHIA exam for the first time, a review of several secure clinical text vendor websites, and a study assessing patient perceptions of EMR intrusiveness during ambulatory visits.

Perspectives in Health Information Management is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, referred to by professors, professionals, public officials, industry leaders, and policy-makers. Since 2004, Perspectives has been one of the most credible and respected journals of the HIM industry, and is referenced in notable indices such as PubMed Central (PMC), the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health (CINAHL), and Google Scholar. Join Perspectives in celebrating more than 10 years of scholarly publishing that advances health information management practice.
