New Career Map: Careers in Health Information

2015 Summer Newsletter, Initiative Updates

NYACH and the NYC Labor Market Information Service (LMIS) have released Planning Your Career in Health Information, a user-friendly guide to careers in health information management and technology.  The guide takes the reader through the various stages of managing health information – from gathering and recording to assuring data quality, billing, and analyzing – and details the occupations, salaries, education and experience requirements, and the career paths within and across these stages. This is complemented by a table outlining health information management and technology certificate and degree programs at CUNY colleges and community based organizations, including options for stacking credentials where applicable. The guide is a tool for job-seekers, incumbent workers, career counselors, educators, administrators, and human resource personnel, and demystifies the job opportunities and career ladders within this field of growing importance to the healthcare sector.  The guide can be found on NYACH’s website here.
