Information technology is revolutionizing every aspect of society, and healthcare is no exception. In fact, healthcare is a sector that can uniquely benefit from the accurate and comprehensive aggregation of information. A number of healthcare information systems workers are employed in an effort to use IT to manage administrative aspects of healthcare. Health information managers combine an understanding of business and IT to implement functional medical records and information systems in healthcare offices. They direct the daily activities of health information technicians. Health information technicians are the professionals who manage individual health records on a daily basis; they update records with new information, store records, and produce records at the doctor’s request. Medical billing and coding specialists use the information in medical records to bill insurance companies and ensure that the healthcare facility is reimbursed for its services.

An associate degree in healthcare information systems is appropriate for positions as a health information technician, billing and coding specialist, or other healthcare information support worker. Those interested in becoming health information managers will need to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree in health administration, healthcare information systems, business administration, or another pertinent area. While not required, professional credentials are widely regarded in this field and can help one secure a job.

A large increase in the demand for healthcare services is predicted for the 2008-2018 period, as the elderly population in the United States balloons. Because of this, health information technicians and managers should have very good job opportunities in the coming years. The average annual health information technician salary ranges from $24,000-39,000; health information managers earn $62,000-104,000.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2016-2018 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2018-2019 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site,
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
