Research is essential for societal development and economics. For a profession, it builds the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline, enables practitioners to staying current with developments and technology, and allows the profession to evolve and adapt to meet future needs. Yet, the level of research undertaken by health professionals varies considerably by discipline (Marshall et al 2016). There is a perception that research is important but often not a priority or accommodated within the work day, or there is a lack of interest, knowledge, experience, resources, or supervision and support (Marshall et al. 2016; Akerjordet, Lode & Severinsson, 2012; Johnson et al. 2014; Rahman et al. 2011). There is a lack of literature examining research practice by Health Information Management professionals, and a perception that practitioners do not undertake research.
