Career Pathing Your HIM Department

HIM departments across the country are continually challenged to retain their most highly skilled professionals. Quality coders are in high demand and HIM professionals are looking more and more to enhance their career opportunities. As a long time HIM department leader I have experienced first-hand the difficulty of developing career paths for employees. The good news is that the HIM segment is poised for continued growth with job opportunities expected to grow by 15% by 2024. With a little planning and a commitment to your people you can make your facility a “destination” for HIM professionals.
