Your Health Informatics Career Outlook

Healthcare is changing and growing every day. With more information than ever before, there is a great need for professionals trained to interpret a patient’s medical data into a meaningful, comprehensive personal health profile. Strategic measurement, reporting and analysis will aid with quality control and process improvements, creating better real-world care for individuals and improvement in population health.

Health informatics is critical to the development and implementation of health services and systems designed to promote optimal patient care. New models of patient care, including reforms to health care delivery require more accountability in owning patient care decisions. These new models include a systems approach with the integration of the following aspects:

  • Administrative
  • Clinical
  • Financial
  • Managerial Operations

Being able to clearly identify, analyze, and react to health information will be crucial in aligning with changes as they are developed in health care delivery systems across multiple settings.

Now, more than ever, the healthcare needs professionals who are trained to bridge the gap between disciplines to create a big-picture perspective on a patient’s whole health to ensure the best care possible, no matter the situation.
