What’s Semantics Got to Do with It?

- The Journey from Data Management to Knowledge Management

Sandra Nunn

Sandra Nunn, MS,MA, RHIA, CHP is principal of KAMC Consulting (Knowledge Asset Management & Control). Sandra has worked primarily with Presbyterian Healthcare (the largest provider of health services in New Mexico) on ECM and EIM.  While at Presbyterian, Sandra worked with her ECM team on the viability of a cloud solution for e-mail archival and led the organizational taskforce on E-Discovery. The ECM team also took responsibility for the introduction of SharePoint to Presbyterian. Sandra also served as Presbyterian’s Enterprise Records Manager and served on the task force that selected Epic as the enterprise EHR solution.  Sandra developed Presbyterian’s Enterprise Retention Schedule, helped define the legal health record and the designated record set for HIPAA purposes and worked up a taxonomy to structure the index behind the ECM.  Sandra began her educational career teaching French and English.  After her transition to working in health care, she began to teach in the evenings in RHIT programs in Colorado and eventually at CNMCC in New Mexico for a total of 15 years teaching experience.  

 Sandra is the author of an AHIMA publication:  Enterprise Content Management and the Electronic Health Record (EHR).  She is also a Contributing Editor for For The Record magazine.  Her 18 years as a System Director of HIM/Privacy in 3 different healthcare organizations evolved to management of IS projects.  A pioneer in data administration, she served on the Data Resource Administrator Task Force for Vision 2006, then on AHIMA's e-Discovery Task Force.  Sandra has spoken at HIMSS, AHIMA, the IT Security Institute, AIIM and IFHIMA in Milan, Italy.  In June 2014 she joined an attorney specializing in computer forensics to speak about the future of e-Discovery to the Special Libraries Association at their annual conference in Vancouver, BC. Sandra sat on AHIMA’s national council on Information Governance and recently presented on Information Governance for the NMHIMA, also presenting to the New Mexico Tech Council on the role of Data Governance as a subset of Information Governance (February 2019).  Sandra has also served on AHIMA’s national practice council on Privacy and Security. Sandra has her first master’s degree in Computer Resources and Information Management and has just finished a second master's degree in Information Architecture and Knowledge Management from Kent State University in Kent, OH.  
Sandra is originally from Colorado, but has happily resided in Albuquerque, NM, since 1980.  She is married with two grown stepdaughters and a son who lives in Pittsburgh, PA.  She enjoys traveling with her husband, especially on bird watching trips.  She has a long history of owning and loving terriers.  The current household resident is an 8 month old Cairn terrier named Rolly.  She also has both friends and family in Seattle, WA, and is disappointed that she cannot visit Seattle until later this year (October).

About the Event: 

The HIM profession has largely abandoned titles like Medical Records Librarian, too often reminding new HIM graduates of the days of Edna K. Huffman, one of the field’s founders.  New HIM job titles are sexier, have more respect and often pay better.  The focus of these new types of work leans on data management, privacy/security or revenue cycle improvements.  This presentation looks back to AHIMA’s original mission, i.e. records management and demonstrates how our colleagues in library science have pioneered new career pathways through the exploration of semantics to illuminate how we reach our own healthcare-related goals of findability, interoperability and knowledge discovery.
