We’ve seen a lot of big changes happening in the healthcare industry over the past few years. The use of electronic health records and advanced medical imaging, along with the implementation of other technologies across the field, have made healthcare services more efficient and reliable. Hospitals and medical institutions are eager to implement new technologies because they also help bring the costs of providing healthcare services down. As these new technologies become more commonly used, it is not surprising to find more hospitals looking for qualified health information management specialists to fill key positions.
The University of Cincinnati and its online HIM program has been the leading entity in the field. Other similar programs are preparing bachelors in health information management to step up to the challenges and fulfill the needs of modern hospitals across the city.
