In addition, they often develop organization-specific standards
(standard operational procedures (SOPs)) for privacy and security, compliance, audit, and release of information policies. These
SOPs are also developed for clinical documentation improvement (case definition and document templates), and information
sharing (data agreements). Many of these organization-specific
efforts will be provided to the AHIMA IG Practice Council and
Standards Task Force members for discussion and assessment—
with the teams working to define best practices and lessons
learned and then formalize the recommendations into business
and functional standards via a consensus-based process. ¢
