How AI Is Changing Educational Needs for HIM Professionals

By Keith Loria

Due to the changing health care ecosystem and technological advances, there’s a greater need for HIM professionals to become more educated, trained, and skilled at a higher professional level. This includes fostering interoperability, understanding data analytics, focusing on data integrity, and learning how automation and artificial intelligence (AI) tools affect HIM workforce.

“AI will aid HIM professionals in becoming more empowered to oversee software and systems, replacing many manual tasks,” says Lakeisha Tolbert, MA, RHIA, CHPS, AHIMA’s director of practice advancement. “Professionals cannot wait for their leader to suggest or recognize them; it’s up to each individual to prepare themselves by gaining the education needed for our evolving future in the AI world.”

Brian Prince, founder and CEO of TopAITools.com, a platform dedicated to demystifying AI, has witnessed firsthand the amazing potential of AI in health care.

“The integration of AI into HIM marks a shift in how we process, analyze, and utilize health care data,” he says. “AI is an integral component in efforts to enhance decision-making, improve patient outcomes, and pioneer personalized medicine. However, the complexity and newness of AI technologies require that HIM professionals possess a level of proficiency and understanding to harness these tools effectively.”
