  5. Careers: Master of HIHIM

UW Master of Health Informatics and Health Information Management (MHIHIM) graduates have a great career outlook.

Fueled by general growth in the health care sector, demand for health services management professionals is on the rise. In fact, health services management is among the fastest-growing career fields today. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment for medical and health services managers, which includes jobs for health informatics and health information management professionals, will grow by 32% between 2020 and 2030.

Health informatics and information management are increasingly important to population health management and information exchange, especially with the explosion of health care data.

As health information technology (HIT) gains broader adoption, health care providers will increasingly rely on health information professionals for health information and HIT systems.
