Libman Education Releases Results of 4th Annual HIM Professional Census

Findings summarize the insights of over 1200 HIM professionals
BEDFORD, Mass. - June 21, 2022 - PRLog -- The results of Libman Education's 4th annual HIM Professional Census are now available. Over 1200 Health Information Management (HIM) professionals shared their thoughts, concerns, and unique perspective in answering a focused survey of 45 questions.

Health Information Management emerges from the past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic with a new focus on effective management of the HIM function to better support the mission of the organization.
  • Flexible staffing has emerged as a key strategy: organizations deploy a mixture of in-house employees, often cross-trained to ensure coverage of all areas, and out-sourced staff. Remote staff have largely replaced on-site.
  • Use of technologies to support the HIM function, including CAC and data analytics, allows existing staff to be more effective.

For individual HIM professionals, changes to the HIM workplace create both challenges and opportunities for them to apply their skills and knowledge. HIM professionals who embrace the changes and expand their skill set in coding, auditing, management, CDI, and data analytics represent an exciting future for HIM.

"The 2022 HIM Professional Census results confirm what we hear from our students and clients daily – new skills, and new application of existing skills, are needed as HIM professionals work to support their organizations," said Susan Pepple, President of Libman Education. "We are grateful to the respondents for sharing their thoughts with us and we look forward to continuing this constructive dialogue within the HIM community. And, as always, we will be hard at work ensuring our educational products are ready to meet the needs of this dynamic profession."
