WSHIMA Members Share Best Practices and Challenges Regarding Working Remotely

More than 12 months have passed since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. While many aspects of our day-to-day lives have altered, arguably one of the most controversial changes is the switch from in-office to working remotely. But how has this affected those working in the field of HIM?  In a recent Member Pulse Poll, WSHIMA members were asked to share their best practices and challenges regarding working remotely.   Read an article that summarizes what they had to say.
