Impact on Society:
As an eHealth Information Manager, you make sure that patients’ medical information is available and accurate at all times. Having medical records on hand allows doctors to assess a situation quickly and equips them with pertinent background information. When health information is easily accessible, patients can receive fast quality care. Unlike previous paper-based filing systems, electronic databases make it easy for health professionals to access up-to-date information with the touch of a button.
Although eHealth Information Managers work in health care, they do not have direct contact with patients. Rather, they work alongside information technologists, database developers and administrators. To ensure patient’s information is accurate, eHealth Information Managers must stay in constant communication with nurses and doctors. eHealth Information Managers can expect to work about 40 hours per week and benefit from a great salary.
