How I Manage

by Marie Janes, RHIA, FAHIMA

At the upcoming OHIMA 2019 Annual Meeting and Trade Show, I will be presenting on a topic that is paramount to HIM professionals, whether or not they hold a title of manager, supervisor or director. H.I.M.: How I Manage will examine management types, identify management myths, and introduce the audience to the 10 Laws of Management. During the presentation, the audience will participate in “reflection” activities, along with “self-assessment.”

My goal is to explore on-the-job or off-the-job circumstances that impact individuals’ leadership and management knowhow. Is your style demonstrating practical use—or is it practically useless? There is a myriad of exceptional resources available, although many of us simply do not have the time to delve into them. Please join me as I offer ideas, concepts, and techniques to validate the fundamental meaning of stating, this is How I Manage!

Marie Janes has worked in the HIM profession since graduating with her Associate’s degree in Applied Science in HIT from BGSU Firelands College in 1984. In 1986 she was hired by Firelands College as the Instructional/Technical Assistant in the HIT program. She completed her baccalaureate degree through the Medical College of Ohio (now UTMC) and the University of Toledo consortium for Health Care Supervision and Management, graduating cum laude in 1994. With the advent of the Internet and its impact on technology in health care, Marie entered graduate studies, earning a Master’s in Education from the Technical College at Bowling Green State University in 2000. In 2002, she began a doctoral program at the University of Toledo; however, she withdrew a year later in order to create the first online HIM program in Ohio, which earned CAHIIM accreditation in 2005 and is still going strong. Throughout her career she has experience "the joy of victory and the agony of defeat." Teaching is her passion, but helping others “manage” is her calling. She has been promoted, demoted, downsized and discharged; however, each experience has provided insight to help others as they achieve their dreams or deal with their disappointments.
