MRO Celebrates Health Information Professionals Week
During Health Information Professionals (HIP) Week, MRO enjoys celebrating our Health Information Management (HIM) partners and staff, who perform their duties masterfully throughout the year. We have the pleasure of working with the industry’s most dedicated professionals whose expertise upholds high standards of integrity.
With appreciation for this year’s HIP Week theme “Health Information Professionals Driven by Health Data,” MRO affirms its commitment to protecting client data. This core responsibility is reflected in our recent HITRUST CSF Certification and SOC 2 Type II audit.
MRO’s expert Protected Health Information (PHI) disclosure management teams equip our HIM partners with the safeguards, services and resources needed to sustain a superior reputation for compliance, service quality and patient satisfaction. Resources include guidance from renowned industry experts, along with passionate teams of Release of Information (ROI) specialists eager to provide high levels of customer care.
HIM’s Everyday Heroes
At MRO, our mission is simple. We aim to share the right PHI with the right requesting parties, in the most compliant, efficient and secure way. And, we do more than share medical records. We make a difference in the lives of patients—sometimes we even save lives.
The work of HIM matters, especially Release of Information. Proper ROI enables better coordination of care, helps patients secure disability benefits, and supports patients through insurance claims or lawsuits when medical records are required. The fast and accurate sharing of medical records can make a lasting impact for a patient in need.
Many MRO employees have been recognized as personal heroes to patients and other requesters of health information whom we have had the privilege of helping. They email us, send cards and gifts, and make phone calls to share their positive experiences with MRO. We regularly highlight these exceptional HIM professionals in an employee development and recognition program fittingly called MRO’s “Everyday Heroes.” We are proud to have our heroes serving over 8,500 healthcare locations and their patients across the U.S.
HIM Expert Resources
HIM leaders at many of the nation’s top health systems trust and rely on MRO’s KLAS-rated #1 Release of Information services and team of renowned experts. Our leadership team was skillfully assembled to provide our HIM partners with the best guidance and support possible, as together we navigate the complex world of compliant PHI disclosure.
