Masters in Healthcare Degrees in Nevada

While the tourism and mining industries in Nevada get all the attention due to the large number of casinos and natural resources in the state, health care is also a central industry in Nevada. In fact, Nevada is now finding itself on the cutting edge of advancements in health information technology after a consortium of health care providers announced a statewide health information exchange that will make it easier for health care practitioners to access patient medical records from other providers. This initiative could create opportunities for health information managers to really step up to the plate and provide leadership in their organization. A Nevada Masters in Healthcare with a specialization in health informatics or health information management could prepare you for these types of leadership positions, although other opportunities may be available outside of healthcare IT, including management positions in Nevada’s hospitals, clinics, large medical practices, and more. In 2011, Nevada was home to 1,760 medical and health services managers who earned an average annual salary of $95,920, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
