FYI in advance, this might go a little long but I'll try to keep it under 1
screen. :)
There are a number of issues to address to answer her question, though,
so be advised - it *is* me, after all. }:)

We had ours in December, presumably under the same cycle of rules.  In
our case  the IM interview was scheduled to include (naturally) records
issues, electronic linkage, external databases, aggregate info (as always),
etc.   (All this of course is after the document review.)

We were originally scheduled to have a 3-day with all major aspects
included, but as the date approached some things like Continuum of Care
& a couple of others were deleted to allow more time for some other areas.

Having been through one of these combined interviews before in '97 I wasn't
really expecting anywhere near as much time for the library as when it was
a separate item so I knew I wouldn't be anything like front-burner.   (The
IM
interview was only slotted for about an hour total.)

The surveyor apologized for not hitting the library any heavier than he did
(due to having to take additional time for some problems with records
issues) & said that he really had wanted to know more on the knowledge-
based info initiatives (he'd been here at the hospital before as an
administrator when he was active duty Air force).  He did ask what we had
going, where we wanted to head, & what we saw the overall future of KBI
being relative to the big picture. It'd have been nice to have a little more
time but I got my major points across & we took no hits, so.... :)

I just got back from the IM interview.  In 2000 they are doing something
different. Because so much of what they want to know about IM is in the
document review, they have combined the IM interview (15 minutes) with the
medical record interview (15 minutes) and the closed record review(1 hour).
The only questions asked were about planning and confidentiality and
security.  I don't know if they looked at the knowledge-based materials in
the document review, but  I can tell you that they didn't ask me one
question.  I will be interested to know if others have similar experiences,
which is disappointing after all of the hard work of our MLA leadership in
this area.
