Career Map

 

The Health Information Manager is a member of the health care team and is the professional responsible for management of health information systems consistent with medical, administrative, ethical and legal requirements. Health Information professionals collect, analyze and utilize data to provide information critical to the health care industry. A Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) collects many kinds of data from a variety of sources, monitors the integrity of the information, ensures appropriate access to health records and manages the analysis and use of this data. This professional is an essential connection between physicians, patients, payers and other in the healthcare industry.

Health Information professionals are often employed as department managers in hospital centers. Major areas of responsibility in this setting include: determining health information policies; planning; budgeting; acting as a liaison with other departments; evaluating employee performance; educating departmental staff, medical staff and ancillary departments to assure quality information; and serving on important committees such as quality management and utilization review.

With the advancing of technology and the transition to the electronic health record, RHIAs are finding expanding opportunities for employment in a wide variety of organizations including Health Maintenance Organizations, insurance companies, law firms, physician offices, consulting firms, software companies and the pharmaceutical industry.

A survey of our past graduates found that of those responding to our survey, 93% were employed in an HIM related position within 6 months of graduation and 100% respondants reported overall satisfaction with the program.  Comments submitted state that the program has motivating teachers and that small classes result in a positive experience.  One states "I think [the university] does an excellent job in preparing their students and makes an effort each year to tailor the program to the current needs of the industry".

Health information opportunities involve planning for and implementing computerized patient record systems as well as playing a vital role in maintaining the privacy and security of health information stored in multiple formats.  Professionals with technical expertise, problem solving skills, knowledge of clinical medicine and superior communication skills are needed to develop new policies and procedures in health care documentation and protecting patient confidentiality.
