In an Evolving Industry, HI Professionals Must Also Grow and Change

As the healthcare industry, technology, and the world change, so too must health information professionals. The work performed today by health information professionals looks very different from the work performed nearly a century ago by the industry’s pioneer medical record librarians. The profession has an extraordinary impact on healthcare, providing the link between clinicians, administrators, technology designers, operations, and information technology.


Success Requires a Shot of Emotional Intelligence

Studies indicate that it is not skill or knowledge that separates effective and nominal performers. Instead, it is low emotional intelligence that separates the unsuccessful from the highly successful.

To cultivate and improve emotional intelligence, focus on behaviors consistent with:

  • Mindfulness
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship management
