Job Description


Paradise Valley Hospital is a recipient of the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award, a designation that recognizes superior performance of hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays.


Paradise Valley is the only hospital in San Diego County to receive this recognition five years in a row (2014-2018). Paradise Valley is a member of Prime Healthcare, and Prime Healthcare has more Patient Safety Excellence Award recipients for three consecutive years (2016-2018) than any other health system in the country.


“We applaud the hospitals who have received the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Their dedication and commitment to providing safe care creates tangible results for patients.”


The distinction places Paradise Valley among the top five percent of all acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.


“We are extremely honored to receive this award,” says Neerav Jadeja, Paradise Valley Hospital CEO. “All of our staff, both clinical and non-clinical, physicians, and leadership are devoted to providing the highest quality care for our community. Their hard work and dedication to our hospital helps ensure a safe environment for our patients.”

The Health Information Tech II assists physicians and other medical personnel in achieving timely, accurate, and complete documentation practices. The Tech II analyzes the assembled record for chart completion deficiencies, in accordance with regulatory requirements and Medical Staff Rules and Regulations. The deficiencies are assigned to the appropriate medical staff member, and data entered for tracking and monitoring purposes. Medical Staff members are notified, and held accountable for these chart completion items. The Tech II will assist the medical staff member in their chart completion effort, but will carry out the suspension process if the medical staff member does not complete their records in a timely manner. Once the medical staff member addresses their documentation deficiencies or upon addition of a document to the analyzed record, the Tech II will review this documentation and update or clear the deficiencies as appropriate. The Tech II is also responsible for answering telephone calls and assisting visitors (including but not limited to physicians, patients, and their family members), while maintaining confidentiality. The Tech II will further support the department needs through assistance in any of the Tech I, Release of Information, or other duties as assigned.
