Session Description

AHDI’s Career Map for Healthcare Documentation has been designed as a guide for career planning and goal setting in new and changing roles within the healthcare documentation industry. Individuals will better be able to understand how they can use their knowledge, skills, and experience to better position themselves for the roles they want. The Career Map also is useful to organizations looking to refine or restructure their departments and develop their teams.
