NYACH and LMIS Release Guide to Planning Your Career in Health Information

Initiative Updates

The New York Alliance for Careers in Healthcare and the NYC Labor Market Information Service are excited to release 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.  The information technology section looks specifically at the jobs in hardware, software, and cyber-security within healthcare institutions.  All of this is complemented by a table outlining health information management and technology certificate and degree programs at City University of New York colleges and community based organizations, including options for stacking credentials where applicable.

Planning Your Career in Health Information is a tool for job-seekers, incumbent workers, job developers, career counselors, educators, administrators, and human resource personnel.  The guide demystifies the job opportunities and career ladders within this field of growing importance to the healthcare sector, helping New Yorkers and the workforce development community to plan accordingly.

Electronic copies are available at www.nyachnyc.org/resources/job-seekers-workers/ and hard copies can be requested.  Stay posted for a release event and workshop to take place in mid-April.
