Explain at least 5 skills the HIM professional should have for using databases. Remember to explain them; do not just list them. You may use the article as a basis, but you should expand upon items using your own impressions and ideas. What have you learned about the needs of end users (such as physicians, HIM professionals, etc.) and the kinds of communications skills HIM professionals may use to determine the needs of end users such as physicians, charge nurses, etc.?
