The HIM Specialist is primarily responsible for assisting the HIM Director by routinely performing duties in support of the management of the Horizon Patient Folder (HPF) and/or McKesson Patient Folder (MPF) workflow queues, working applicable worklists within 3M 360 Encompass, the resolution of unbilled accounts, and the processing of physician suspensions. In addition, the HIM Specialist serves as the primary point of contact when the HIM Director and/or HIM Coordinator is unavailable.

In this role you will:

* Assist in resolving accounts in the eRequest queue, which includes, but is not limited to, payment window accounts, requests for sterilization forms and pre-certifications.
* Coordinate or be instrumental in the physician suspension process, evaluating if documentation or circumstances warrant a physician be put on suspension and creating the list of recommended suspensions for approval. This requires understanding the facility's guidelines and requirements necessary to trigger suspension. May oversee other clerks in completing more routine duties related to printing and stuffing incomplete record status and suspension letters and in making physician calls.
* Provide support to the birth certificate process, if L&D services are available, which requires interacting with parents, using diplomacy and sensitivity, to obtain accurate information required by the state for birth certificates and acknowledgment of paternity (AOP) forms. Some states require certification to perform the duties of a birth certificate clerk.
* Assist with release of information (ROI) requests, which involves interacting in person or over the phone with patients and giving instruction/assistance in completing the ROI request process.
* Assist with merging duplicate accounts, which requires research and problem solving to ensure that the duplicate accounts are one and the same patient and determine which account number to be used.
* Assist with chart pickup, as time permits, and with reconciling retrieved medical records against patient discharge lists, ensuring receipt of all records within 24 hours of patient discharge.
