HEALTH INFORMATION STANDARDS2The process of strengthening health systems is by its very nature focused on empowering health organizations to initiate activities that seek to empower the quality of care delivery and hospital operations. Health agencies usually try the least demanding procedures, to cut down on cumulative costs, simplify, and harmonize overlapping regulations to implement approaches that address the collective good of the American health consumers. It is thus, important that any leader engaged in the process understands and owns the implementation process. The objective of this task is to analyze health information standards and regulations for health systems to come up with a flexible action plan presented to the CEO and board of directors with information and guidance for strengthening the health system. The framework builds upon documentation of health records guidelines related to the Joint Commission (TJC) (2014), to come up with a comprehensive strategy on the best practices for enhancing the existing health system in order to reduce the unnecessary burden and cut on operation costs. The revision will allow the health system greater flexibility and freedom to come up with the most effective ways to manage healthcare delivery by overcoming outdated requirements for outpatient services.Health record documentation guidelines form an integral part of the process of streamlining and designing effective regulatory framework for increased innovation, economic growth, job creation, and market competitiveness. The guidelines are intended to reduce the procedural burdens on health care providers when documenting medical records. In this regard, this study evaluates the most feasible and viable guidelines for increased competency in developing a robust action plan for the health system based on the (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Health and Human Services, 2012).
