Task 3: Performance Improvement Management
Health information management professionals may move into positions of management and leadership, inheriting the responsibilities and challenges that accompany the title of supervisor in a healthcare organization. In most cases, quality improvement includes analyzing processes and employee behavior, along with being responsible for external standards that drive internal processes. A supervisor who leads staff is always preparing the members to grow into the next job level while still maintaining expectations for current productivity and work standards. Developing an effective work team requires strong leadership with a constant eye on improving the quality of the work environment.
