So here I am, almost 43 years old, 4 kids, 1 granddaughter, a dog, 2 cats, divorced and doing schoolwork. Schoolwork? Yes, schoolwork. A few years ago, at my previous healthcare job I had a devastating back injury and had to decide on a different career path that didn’t involve lifting more than ten pounds. The Health Informatics and Information Management program at Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids seemed to be just the right fit for me. Since healthcare was my interest all along, I would have to go from doing the “hands-on” work, to doing more of the technical side of this field. So far, it hasn’t been easy. But I know that the payoff and sense of accomplishment will be very rewarding.
The Health Information and Information Management Program will teach me a vast amount of information and allow me the opportunity for several different employment placements. For example: Data Quality Analyst, Diagnosis Related Group Coordinator, Health Information Supervisor, Health Information Technician, and many others. There are also many potential advancement opportunities associated with this career path.
