8 findings from the 2018 HIMSS Compensation Survey
The average salary of digital health professionals continues to rise, although the rate of growth appears to be slowing, according to results of the 2018 HIMSS U.S. Compensation Survey. However, the report, by the nation’s largest health IT organization, finds that many compensation disparities exist among select population groups, with evidence suggesting that, “on average, both female and non-white digital health professionals are paid less than their respective peers.”
The survey had 885 respondents representing healthcare IT professionals from an array of organizations. To be included, respondents needed to work in the U.S.; have a position in direct management, development or support of health IT in a provider organization; and provide compensation data to yield an annual salary profile.
