Health Informatics and Information Management

Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) is a challenging career for people interested in medicine, technology, and management. HIIM professionals are experts in managing the collection, storage, retrieval and interpretation of healthcare information.

At the master’s level, professionals may develop information systems for quality patient care; facility reimbursement; medical research; health planning; and health care evaluation

To provide the highest quality health care delivery, health information is used not only for patient care, but also in medico-legal issues, research, planning and evaluation. Opportunities for employment are found in a variety of organizations, including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, home health agencies, health plans, insurance agencies, governmental agencies, educational institutions, vendor organizations and research centers.

Implementation of electronic health records has increased the need for individuals skilled in health informatics and information management and has broadened opportunities for HIIM practice.
