Abstract

Health care systems are complex and often approach a deterministic chaos in the number and types of interactions that occur among health care providers and patients, as well as among the providers themselves. Such complexity may be an important barrier as North American health care systems are evolving into care-giving settings in which providers work to improve patient outcomes though interprofessional collaborative patient-centred care. The research on evidence-based learning and how to build new models of professional development opportunities for health information management (HIM) professionals is explored. Additionally, creating new and more effective undergraduate training programs in HIM is examined. From the perspective of interprofessional care, the authors provide a core set of interprofessional competencies and discuss how these competencies may be sensibly integrated into, and evaluated within, undergraduate curricular structures as well as professional development programs. A special emphasis of the chapter is an analysis of two case studies that highlight the barriers inherent within complex health care systems. Such barriers inhibit evidence-based education and professional development designed to improve interprofessional care.
