Data is crucial to today's healthcare professionals. As the demands on the healthcare field increase, so does the amount of patient information that organizations are responsible for securely storing and managing on a day-to-day basis. As the number of professionals in this field is expected to increase, leaders are needed to oversee them and to ensure health information management (HIM) is at the forefront of strategic needs across an enterprise.
With an online master's degree from Southern New Hampshire University's health information management program, you'll be well qualified to manage large volumes of complex data - as well as the personnel who touch it on a daily basis. As a health information management (HIM) leader, you'll be the go-to in your organization for the management and accountability of data assets including accuracy, accessibility and security, especially as leading associations emphasize the need for graduate-level professionals in more advanced positions.
