Health Information Management Association Case Study

I’m trying to study for my Health & Medical course and I need some help to understand this question.

The HIM department is small and has very limited r esources. Normally the director goes to the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) national meeting, but this year she will be unable to go because she will be on maternity leave. The director feels that the new employee, a registered health information administrator (RHIA) who will be covering while she is on maternity leave, should go. Another employee, who is also an (RHIA) and has been with the department longer, feels she should go.

How should the director choose which employee will go?

Create a reply that is at least a half-page, but no more than one page in length, double spaced. Identify at least two Leadership principals that would apply. Explain what process you would use to choose. Use at least one APA cited reference, that is not your textbook.
