Overview

The need for health-care informatics professionals has gradually increased as data and technology continue to drive the growth of the health-care business. Job vacancies in health-care informatics are rising across the sector, including at hospitals, clinics, technology businesses, insurance companies, and private physician offices, as electronic medical records and other technologies that create large amounts of data become more widely adopted. Health-care informatics professionals are predicted to have a 13 percent rise in job possibilities between 2016 and 2026, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The Healthcare Informatics program at St. John's University supports the core Vincentian values of compassion and service as it teaches you technical skills that can be used to combat poverty, disease, and crime, and provide health care solutions. It utilizes new instructional labs in St. Augustine Hall to provide you with maximum academic success support.

Career Outcomes

Health-care informatics combines traditional health care with digital information. It is a relatively new field, and with most careers utilizing emerging forms of technology, a health-care informatics career is bound to thrive for years to come. The profession also allows individuals to help patients without becoming a licensed medical practitioner.

Additionally, since health-care informatics is a relatively young field, new careers are constantly emerging. Individuals who commit to long-term learning and continuing education can even create their own positions in the field.

Health-care informatics is a vast and rapidly growing field that encompasses many areas of the health-care industry. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that health occupations should experience job growth of 14 percent from 2019 to 2029. More than 2.5 million new jobs will be created by 2029, making this a great field to pursue.
