Posted on 01.22.2013
CareerStep is pleased to announce that its sponsorship of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Foundation played a vital role in the development of the new Health Information Management (HIM) Career Map.
“We greatly appreciate CareerStep’s philanthropic contribution,” said Dr. Bill Rudman, Executive Director of the AHIMA Foundation and Vice President of Education Visioning for AHIMA.“Their support was instrumental in developing this new tool, which we believe defines the profession like never before by showing where the HIM field is heading.”
The HIM Career Map is an interactive, online tool designed for students, recent graduates and professionals interested in mapping their career opportunities in the HIM field. The tool offers a visual representation of a variety of HIM job titles and roles and their relationship with each other. Users can select an entry point and explore different career paths that lead to their desired position.
“We work closely with AHIMA on a number of initiatives to ensure we have a strong connection to the HIM industry,” said Mike Hodgson, CareerStep Vice President of Healthcare and Corporate Partnerships. “This tool is an excellent resource as it helps our students, graduates and partners better understand the opportunities available.”
