Health Informatics Jobs

Health Informatics Job Overview

Health informatics refers to the special health care field that involves information science, social science, the behavioral sciences and computer science. It has evolved from a field that dealt mainly with paper records to one that increasingly requires ever-changing technology. The most common job duties of people in health informatics jobs may include:

  • Working with health care workers to obtain data
  • Creating departmental reports with attention to detail
  • Developing health care reports with co-workers
  • Communicating medical policies to other workers
  • Conducting reviews on data quality
  • Managing charts and records
  • Completing administrative assistant tasks as needed
  • Monitoring health records and updating them as needed
  • Maintaining positive, professional relationships with staff members
  • Organizing clinical databases as needed
  • Tracking patient outcomes
  • Providing administrative support to physicians and health care workers

Candidates should hone their analytical skills as well as their interpersonal skills and technical skills. Succeeding in health informatics jobs also requires workers to be detail-oriented with a great deal of integrity. They should also be flexible and able to multitask as needed.

Health Informatics Job Education Requirements

Most health informatics positions require that candidates obtain at least an associate’s degree or certificate from an accredited institution of higher learning. The focus for such degree programs should be health information technology or a related field. On-the-job experience is also crucial, so it’s best to apply for internships in the field during or immediately after the degree program.

Because of the dynamic nature of health informatics, people who wish to pursue this career path will need to stay on top of changes as technology evolves at a rapid pace. That means that those who aspire to such careers will need to commit to lifelong learning. Candidates who are still considering other health care career options may want to consider pursuing further education for practical nursing jobs and clinical research associate jobs.

Health Informatics Job Market

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicated a growth of approximately 22 percent in health informatics jobs within the next ten years. That’s a rapid rate of growth compared to most other occupations. This outlook is also tied to the overall growth in the health care industry thanks to increases in the aging population and better availability of health care services. Those who achieve a higher education, perhaps even a bachelor’s degree, and who have a great deal of on-the-job experience will have the best job prospects.

Health Informatics Job Salary Information

Workers in the health informatics field earned an estimated annual salary of approximately $34,000 in 2012. The lower earning health informatics jobs paid less than $22,250 per year, while the highest-earning health informatics workers earned over $56,000 per year in 2012. Most health informatics jobs are for full-time work, and some may require work on nights and weekends.
