Health Informatics Job and Salary Expectations in Louisiana - LA

As the merger of the health care and information technology industries continues to solidify and grow in Louisiana, the opportunity for jobs is exploding.  Most health care-related occupations will enjoy faster than average job growth over the next several years. Health informatics is no different; in fact, it is likely to be one of the fastest growing professions as governmentally mandated changes in the acquisition and storage of patient information require the entire industry to make adjustments and update their technology.

Hospitals in Louisiana such as Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, CHRISTUS Schumpert Health System in Shreveport, and Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans will need people who can implement and maintain medical records, research databases to analyze medical information, and use an array of other technologically based tools that serve to improve patient care and enhance efficiency throughout the health care system.

The average health information management salary for administrators is likely to be higher than that of individuals in similar positions outside the medical field.  This is because of the comprehensive skill set these professionals have developed through formal education. Upgrading, maintaining, analyzing, and protecting medical information are among the greatest responsibilities borne by healthcare facilities, so the average salary will tend to reflect the importance of the position.  Listed below are health information management salaries for health informatics specialists in several Louisiana cities:

  • New Orleans:  $71,000
  • Baton Rouge:  $69,000
  • Shreveport:  $60,000
  • Metairie:  $71,000
  • Lafayette:  $56,000
  • Lake Charles:  $70,000
  • Monroe:  $69,000
