Sample Reflection Journal Entry

Your Name: Henry Healthcare

Date: April 1, 2012

Name of Facility: St. Antonio’s Hospital

Description: Today we went to St. Antonio’s Hospital. We were greeted by the director Jane Doe, RHIT and given a tour of the HIM department. Jane explained the flow of the medical record from discharge to the permanent file area. She gave us a brief overview of the steps a medical record goes through from assembly and analysis, coding, incomplete file area, reanalysis, and permanent storage. Jane gave us copies of her facilities closed chart order and answered our questions thoroughly.

Reflection/Impression: I feel I learned some interesting factors today that re-enforced what I learned in class/lab. I found assembly and analysis to be very interesting and saw how coding is a critical function in the health information department. I look forward to learning more about the different job duties within health information in the next class. I found this experience to be very enlightening and I hope to learn more next week.
