SLOW ADOPTION OF HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGERS
The Botswana Health Information Management Association moves to call on the public and private sector to empower qualified health information management professionals. For an occupation which has been identified as a scarce skill, expectations would be that empowerment and placement of these professionals is a priority to serve in bridge roles that connect clinical, operational, administrative, and health insurance functions in the public and private sector.
