The collection, organization, retrieval and storage of health care information and records are essential to the delivery of
health care and the promotion of public health. Health Information specialists increasing rely on computer technology
and systems to provide health care workers, researchers, insurance companies and government agencies with the
necessary information to provide patient care, prevent disease, allocate resources, and conduct research to advance
community and global health.
Areas of Study in Health Informatics and Health Information Management: Anatomy and Physiology, Medical
Terminology, Health Care Statistics, Disease Concepts, Clinical Information and Records Management, Health Care Coding
and Billing, Organizational Theory, Computer Applications, Electronic Health Care Records, Legal Concepts and
Regulations, Quality Assurance and Risk Management, Current Issues in Health Care, Professional Standards and
Professional Ethnics, Leadership and Interpersonal Communications.
Career Opportunities—What can I do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Informatics and
Health Information Management?
Graduates of Health Informatics and Health Information Management develop the knowledge and skills to collect, manage,
analyze and deliver health care records and information. Health Information specialists must adhere to health care
standards, government regulations and professional ethics.
Potential employers include: Health Insurance Companies, Medical Clinics, Hospitals, Private Physician’s Office, Medical
Centers, and other Health Care Facilities, Colleges and Universities. For more, please visit career
