AHIMA and ONC Release Project US@ Companion Guide

AHIMA and ONC Release Project US@ Companion Guide

We are proud to have collaborated with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) on the Project US@ Companion Guide to ONC’s recently released Final Version 1.0 of the Technical Specification for Patient Addresses. The Companion Guide helps industry stakeholders translate the technical specifications into operational best practices for representing patient addresses to improve patient identification and matching. Carmen Smiley, information technology specialist in the Office of Technology at ONC, said the collaboration between AHIMA and ONC “resulted in an innovative approach to improved patient matching, setting a precedent for bringing together technical and operational experts working to achieve the same goal.”


Also just published: Our new white paper, Recommended Data Elements for Capture in the Master Patient Index, contains updated naming policy recommendations, to help enable accurate patient matching.

Dr. Lisa L Campbell is an expert-level health care professional who began her career in 1992 as a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA). While working as a CMA, when she was not in the exam room with the provider, she was immersed in the operational side of the Physician’s office and was introduced to one of her many passions, medical coding, health record documentation and revenue cycle management.

After a decade of working in the Physician’s office, she ventured into a director role at Chicago’s major public hospital. While working as a director, she realized that there was a need to help physician practices navigate through the complex maze of regulatory challenges associated with their revenue cycle and from this revelation she established Physician Practice Resources, Inc. in 2002.

Throughout her career, she has gained expertise in Clinical Documentation Improvement, Health Information Management, Health Care Management, Medical Coding, Revenue Cycle Management, Provider and Staff Training and is a Professional Speaker.

Lastly, over the last 29 years, she has earned various certifications through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and is an active member of both organizations.
