Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) is an important and growing field at the intersection
of healthcare and information technology. As hospitals and physicians move towards
electronic health records systems, an increasing number of professionals will be needed
to help develop these systems, protect patient data and information, and train new
users to utilize these new systems.
HIS professionals ensure that the electronic data that medical professionals manage
is maintained and exchanged accurately and efficiently.
Professionals with HIS skills also help capture, transmit, and use health information
improve complex health care processes.
As the population ages, more medical services will be required and more data and insurance
claims will need to be managed, increasing the demand for HIS professionals
