As many HIM professionals seek to enhance their skills and their career, it’s hard to know which direction to take based on various terminology and titles floating around.

There are so many facets! Personally, I like to think that each of us is working on polishing our own gem, our own unique career. I recently attended a CAHIIM Town Hall where Dr. Robert Hoyt explained some of the facets of health informatics terms and titles, and demonstrated a potential path for some HIM professionals.
