    I have the paperback CPHIMS Review Guide, which I have reviewed many times. In addition, I have obtained some of the resources that are listed after each chapter. These resources have helped me understand HIMS topics with more depth. Besides applying these topics on-the-job, I would like to apply them to practice questions to help me prepare for the exam.
    You mentioned that you already have some of the references from the CPHIMS Review Guide.

    “Managing Health Care Information Systems: A Practical Approach for Health Care Executives” (2005) (by Wager, Lee, & Glaser) and “Health Information Management: Concepts, Principles, and Practice” (by Latour) were very helpful.

    “Health Information Management: Concepts, Principles, and Practice” (by Latour) had ‘Real-World Cases’ and ‘Summary’ sections at the end of each chapter that helped with application and analysis. Each chapter had a “Check Your Understanding” section, which had questions for you to answer. You can check your answers with the questions at the back of the book. I studied from the 2nd edition since the newest edition had not been published.

    “Managing Health Care Information Systems: A Practical Approach for Health Care Executives” (by Wager, Lee, & Glaser) had ‘Summary’ and ‘Learning Activities’ sections at the end of each chapter also. I used the 1st edition (2005) at the time.

    I am looking for study resources that have practice questions (particularly scenario questions)....I would like to know if anyone has come across practice questions related to HIMS topics (besides the references listed on the HIMSS web site and CPHIMS Review Guide).
    Try the "Professional Review Guide for the RHIA and RHIT Examinations" by Patricia Schnering. Its the closest thing I found to practice questions for the exam. The book comes with a CD full of practice questions. You can find the book used on amazon or half, just make sure that the CD comes with the book and works.

    The book is divided into sections of practice questions. I focused on the sections that related to the CPHIMS exam.

    Are you board certified in nursing informatics or RHIA certified already?

    I'll have to take a closer look at that resource. Thanks for sharing it!

    “Managing Health Care Information Systems: A Practical Approach for Health Care Executives” had a 'Part 4: Senior Management IT Challenges' that applied the information to scenarios, as did Appendices A and B of that book.

    “Health Information Management: Concepts, Principles, and Practice" (by Latour) had a 'Part V: Knowledge-Based Healthcare Data and Information' and 'Part VI: Management of Health Information Services' that applied the concepts to situations.

    Thanks for the study recommendations!

    The "Professional Review Guide for the RHIA and RHIT Examinations" (by Schnering) was really helpful, especially the CD.

    I'm having to pick out the sections related to the CPHIMS exam as not all sections in Schnering's book are on the exam.

    I already have work experience in information and management systems in healthcare and nursing, and am looking to become certified.

    ...the exam also contains many application and analysis questions. Many years ago, I found practice questions to help me a lot on the NCLEX. That’s why I’m looking for application and analysis type questions to practice for the CPHIMS exam.
    AHIMA came out with "H.I.T. or Miss: Lessons Learned from Health Information Technology Implementations" (by Leviss). You could probably find it on the AHIMA store web site, Amazon, or Half.

    The "H.I.T. or Miss" book has 17 case studies describing failures in HIT projects and lessons learned from those failures. It could help you with the application and analysis questions. Just a thought. Let us know if it helps.

    I make several free PMP quiz programs and a CPHIMS self quiz program available for free. These are ".NET" programs so you will have to have that environment - most Windows operating systems have it already.

    There are screen grabs so you sort of get an idea of what it looks like. You will need to email me the code it gives you when you run it and I email you the unlock key. You can update the program files (2 of them) at any time and the same unlock key will work.

    I update it about every 10 days and now it has 75 questions in various formats with a review mode.

    You can access the site off my LinkedIn page or just directly from here: http://www.alpha6.org/pmstuff/

    On the lower left you will see the link for "CPHIMS Self Test".

    Hope that helps!

    Hi,
    I have a used copy of the CPHIMS guide for sale. I bought it for around $180 (after shipping) 2 months ago. Very good condition, no markings. Can let go for $120 or best offer (with shipping included to anywhere in US). Reviewed this and the CPHIMS self assessment exam.

    Thanks

    Was the book helpful? Did you pass the CPHIMS exam?
