Health information management is an engaging and dynamic occupational field that employs thousands of individuals throughout the United States across the spectrum of health care providing organizations. The ability to navigate these opportunities is influenced heavily by the location of available positions and the skillsets desired by employers. Through study of workforce development data and research in health information management one is able to determine the location and skillset of positions that will help distinguish oneself in a competitive marketplace that values not only education and experience, but the ability to lead in a field that is rapidly changing and growing as the health care industry responds to a consumer that is empowered in their own health and demands more of the industry as a whole.
