As we head into 2020, I reached out to a number of people in Health Information Management (HIM) and Health Information Technology (HIT) to hear their thoughts on these hot topics: Social Determinants of Health (SDoH), Privacy and Security of Health Information, Medical Coding Standards, and Patient Matching.

Turns out that SDoH was a particularly hot topic, so tomorrow we’ll share the responses we received in regards to SDoH. Today, we’ll share what a number of experts saw coming down the pipe on the other 3 topics. I think you’ll enjoy these insights and perspectives heading into 2020.
