Due to federal laws requiring healthcare providers to maintain all patient records electronically, the healthcare industry has experienced a need for informatics professionals to organize and transmit data while maintaining network security.
Health informatics jobs are similar to database administrator and network security jobs, but specific to a medical setting. Responsible for maintaining the database and keeping it secure, candidates need a thorough understanding of database software, medical coding, medical records, network security and other information technology.
To qualify for health informatics positions, candidates need at least a bachelor’s degree, though some facilities prefer a master’s. Informatics degrees are the most applicable, because they focus on both the IT and medical aspects of the field. However, degrees in network security or database administration may suffice in some instances.
Professionals with health informatics jobs can work in hospitals, clinics, private practices, nursing care facilities, medical facilities and other healthcare facilities. Because most medical facilities need them, health informatics jobs are among the fastest growing positions in America. See what positions are open in your area right now at ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs.
