Health information specialists work in hospitals, physician offices, and nursing and residential care facilities. With healthcare becoming available to more and more people and an aging population that needs more medical tests, treatments, and procedures, the need for health information professionals who are educated in HIPAA regulations has grown to meet the increased number of claims being submitted to insurance companies for reimbursement. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts an increase of over 29,000 medical records and health information jobs through 2024. That's a projected increase of 15% — which is much faster than average for all occupations.
