HIM professionals are an integral part of the planning, implementing and utilization of electronic health record systems.

These include the continuum of care delivery organizations; hospitals, multispecialty clinics and physician practices, long-term care, mental health, and other ambulatory care settings. The profession has recently seen significant expansion in nonpatient care settings, with careers in managed care and insurance companies, electronic health record vendors, consulting services, government agencies, education, and pharmaceutical companies.
