Due to the proliferation of data in today’s healthcare environment, HIM professionals are now getting involved in the decision-making processes related to what types of information and data are needed to resolve key business issues and assist in identifying the best ways to deliver high quality care. All of this wealth of information requires analysis for decision-making purposes, and HIM professionals have the critical thinking skills to effectively analyze health data and information of all types. Data analysts may be involved in improving work processes, communicate with leadership at all levels and design effective data analysis and reporting practices. One way to demonstrate your expertise in this field is to obtain the Certified Health Data Analyst (CHDA) credential. HIM professionals hold diverse roles within the data analysis role for their organizations and physician practices such as data analyst, data managers, informatics professionals, and re venue cycle analysts.
