Is Now the Right Time to Advance in the Health Care Field?

Provided by Purdue U Global

The American health care system is undergoing dramatic changes that center on the integration of technology in patient care. Hospitals and health care organizations are upgrading health technology systems and moving from paper to electronic records. These changes have created a need for health information management (HIM) professionals with specialized skills in collecting, analyzing, and protecting vital patient information. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs for medical and health services managers, which include health information jobs, will grow by 17 percent between 2014 and 2024, which is much faster than the average for all occupations.

Opportunities in Health Information Management Are Expected to Remain on the Rise.
Health information management combines the disciplines of medicine, management, finance, information technology, and law. Because of this unique mixture, HIM graduates can move into a variety of positions in many types of health-related organizations.
