The below excerpt from the 2019 Education and Professional Development Guide discusses looking ahead to land the HIM jobs of the future:
Innovation stops for no industry—especially health information management (HIM). And for those HIM professionals who want to have happy, productive careers for years to come, it helps to envision what the future of the profession might look like and where innovation will take HIM careers.
As readers of the Journal of AHIMA are well aware, change is already transforming the HIM industry. Now that the majority of documentation is electronic, jobs working with that documentation—managing patient portals, conducting clinical documentation improvement, and analyzing patient data—are predicted to be core HIM functions in the near future.
AHIMA has been encouraging all upcoming and current HIM professionals to evaluate their skill sets and get additional education and professional development in new areas of expertise that will help lead them to the HIM jobs of the future—training that is highlighted in this Resource Guide.
