ABSTRACT
The article discusses career opportunities for information technology (IT) professionals in securing entry-level positions in the area of health care information management in the U.S. According to the Department of Labor, the field of health care information management is expected to grow 28 percent by 2010. Health care information management professionals have become critical due to their ability to assemble patient information and use software to record and analyze diagnoses. As a technician or specialist, you are able to gain great entry-level exposure to the systems and software used in the health care environment. An entry-level position in this field may involve database management, using specialized software to record and analyze data, storage, retrieval, coding, statistics and securing the confidentiality of patient records. This knowledge will be a huge advantage in getting the higher-level IT jobs in the health care field. For example, the next level within this field is typically the position of health care information administrator. These are the individuals who actually design and manage the systems that record and analyze patient data. Some of the other roles that can be found in the health care information management field include clinical data manager,information security manager, manager of patient information systems, and systems analyst. This is just a selection of the many IT positions available to a skilled professional with knowledge of information technology within the health care environment. This career path can eventually lead to the position of chief information officer of a health care organization.
