Abstract

In a data driven environment, healthcare has seen ongoing digital transformation to meet both clinical and business needs. But, have the educational and functional requirements of the health informatics and information management (HIIM) workforce also adapted? This study examined the current employment opportunities in HIIM globally. Using 11 keywords generated from a literature review, postings on the job advertisement website Indeed™ for all available countries were analyzed. The results show that job postings tend to fall within 4 discrete categories: 1) health information technology; 2) health research; 3) health leadership and project management; and 4) health compliance. Data indicated a higher prevalence for certain areas by country. The findings from this study can inform HIIM educational providers about future skill requirements.
