Getting Microsoft Excel and Adobe Acrobat on the Same Page: Converting and Analyzing PDF Files Using Excel and Access

Description: This workshop will focus on techniques that HIM Professionals can use for converting PDF files into useable data that can be managed in Microsoft Excel and Access. During this workshop we will review several sample files which demonstrate techniques for both data conversion and data cleansing.  We will review practical techniques for quickly and efficiently analyzing data that was held in a PDF format and then converting the data into actionable information useful for analytic purposes.  Examples will be taken from administrative, clinical and financial areas, with particular emphasis on the interaction of data between HIM and Revenue Cycle. No previous knowledge of Microsoft Excel is required to benefit from this workshop.
