HOST: Hi. My name is Allie Gray Freeland and I am the host of Rasmussen College's newest video blog series, What Should I Do With My Life? So in this series we'll speak with expert instructors about educational and career paths that will help you answer the question, what should I do with my life.

So today I'm here with Hertencia Bowe who is the National Health Information Management Program Coordinator for the School of Health Sciences at Rasmussen College. She's here to share with us some really important information about educational and career paths for Health Information Management.

HERTENCIA: To become a health information management practitioner, you must first graduate from a CAHIIM accredited Bachelor of Science degree program, and also become a RHIA, which is a Registered Health Information Management Administrator. And you take that exam with the American Health Information Management Association.

Some typical areas where health information technicians would find job opportunities would be, one in academia. As the field progresses, many people are retiring from the profession so we will need health information technician program coordinators and faculty to keep the profession growing and keep educating our future professionals. Another one is health information software companies. The profession has evolved into a more digitize profession so health information software companies will need help with building systems for the hospitals.

HOST: A special thanks to Hertencia Bowe for sitting with us today to talk about awesome career and educational paths in Health Information Management. I certainly learned a lot, and I hope you did too. So stay tuned for more episodes of What Should I Do With My Life?
