Al Ain Hospital joins AWC as organisational member.

The Ahima World Congress (AWC) has announced that Al Ain Hospital in the UAE has joined AWC as an organisational member.

The three-year AWC Organizational Membership (AWC OM) programme helps healthcare providers, healthcare service organisations, and government/nonprofit agencies achieve excellence in the healthcare core competencies of clinical documentation, medical coding, health data analytics, informatics, and privacy and security.

Al Ain Hospital will focus on clinical documentation. The 402-bed acute care and emergency hospital is one of 12 hospitals in the Seha (Abu Dhabi Health Services Company) system, the largest healthcare network in the UAE. Al Ain Hospital has more than 35 specialist departments, more than 300 doctors, and more than 20,000 inpatient and 320,000 outpatient visits annually.

"Al Ain Hospital is pleased to join AWC and looks forward to working with the Ahima/AWC team to continue our mission of serving our community by providing quality patient care with a focus on clinical excellence," stated Humaid Amhi Al Mansouri, Al Ain Hospital CEO.

"Ahima is the worldwide leader in healthcare information and we are eager to work with AWC to achieve excellence in Ahima Best Practices."

The AWC OM programme provides an assessment and gap analysis to assess Al Ain's current level of clinical documentation, customised training to a core sustainability team and internal trainers, and development of a sustainability plan, all by Ahima subject matter experts. Each year, Al Ain will receive a "Trained by Ahima" seal of excellence, showcasing their quality level in clinical documentation.

"Ahima welcomes Al Ain Hospital as our newest AWC Organisational Member in the UAE," said Wylecia Wiggs Harris, Ahima CEO. "Al Ain recognises the importance of quality healthcare information, and we are proud they selected AWC to help them achieve excellence in clinical documentation!"

Al Ain Hospital is set to differentiate itself through its participation in this ground-breaking new programme.

"We are excited to work with Al Ain Hospital, and applauds them for their foresight in selecting clinical documentation as their initial area of focus," said AWC global managing director Alexandre Bouche. "Accurate clinical documentation has a positive impact on patient care, health record quality, and revenue cycle management." - TradeArabia News Service
