Health Informatics and Information Management is one of the fastest growing professions in the country based on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment of health informatics professionals is expected to grow twice as fast as employment overall. According to the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS), pharmacy informatics focuses on medication related knowledge and data within healthcare systems. Pharmacists in this area of practice frequently work in multi-disciplinary teams for the planning, development, implementation and maintenance of new health care related technologies such as Computerized Practitioner Order Entry (CPOE), Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA), clinical decision support, robotics, telepharmacy and many other technologies.
