Holton Community Hospital History

Health Information Management

While our patients don’t often see us, we see our patients in a way no other healthcare professional does. This perspective is critical to the success of modern healthcare. We see the person connected to the data, ensuring their information stays human; because when information stays human, it stays relevant.

Our HIM staff at HCH has a wide range of knowledge (from physical therapy, radiology, IT, transcription, too billing) and over 50+ years of healthcare experience! Our staff has an extraordinary impact. They ensure a patient’s health information is complete, accurate, and protected!  All while working on the classification of diseases and treatments to ensure they are standardized for clinical, financial, and legal uses in healthcare.

A new service HIM has added is Prior Authorization! Quinn Schumann and Shelly Coverdale are responsible for screening prior-authorization and coordination of specialized services requested at Holton Community Hospital, including a broad range of requests for outpatients, ancillary and clinic services.

“Working in HIM has been nothing but a great experience. Everyone in HIM is always so helpful and has such a great attitude. We all work so good together and I couldn’t ask for a better department.” Kaitlyn Schuetz

“I enjoy working and getting to know everyone that works here. Some will say dealing with insurance is not that rewarding, but so far the positives have outweighed the negatives and I’m hopeful that HIM is making a difference in the HCH community.” Shelly Coverdale

“I’ve enjoyed the transition into HIM – It has been an easier transition with Holli as my boss. Starting a new department and process from the ground up has been and will continue to be a great asset to this hospital.” Quinn Schumann
