Health Information Management Expert Witnesses
Health information management expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds in healthcare administration, health law and policy, clinical informatics, medical billing, medical record review, electronic medical records (EMR), information technology, and/or healthcare compliance. The chosen expert could be associated with a health information industry organization such as the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), the Healthcare Business Management Association (HBMA), HL7 International, the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), or the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI).
Health information management encompasses the analysis and protection of medical information by planning information systems, developing health policy, and identifying current and future needs. Health information management specialists are also responsible for collecting, storing, and transmitting information to meet legal, professional, medical ethics, and administrative requirements.
Example litigation support matters requiring a health information management expert witness include a medical malpractice case, managed care health plan disputes, qui tam matters, standards of care, medical negligence, and health insurance fraud. Expert witness services by a subject matter expert in health care information management could include an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the lead attorney may request a professional with prior expert testimony experience.
