Jason Lee | Chicago Tribune | January 1, 2013

The growth of electronic medical records [EMR] combined with technological advances in health care analytics has made health information management (HIM) one of today's most in-demand health care fields.

The explosion of large-scale health data analysis has made the work of HIM professionals even more critical, according to Lorraine Fernandes, a registered health information administrator and global healthcare ambassador for IBM, who spoke at a recent American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) summit in Chicago.

"Healthcare is a data driven industry and business," said Fernandes, who added that effectively analyzing large amounts of health data could lead to major improvements in areas such as care management, intervention, health economics and patient engagement.
