The HIT Market—are you being paid what you are worth?
The HIMSS Compensation Survey allows healthcare information technology (IT) professionals to compare salaries and compensation packages. This overview provides information on the overall market. It also provides average salary increase and salary information by key demographic variables, including organizational annual net revenue, facility type, geographic region, gender, professional level and length of service. HIMSS members also have access to an exclusive on-line salary calculator, job descriptions and benefits information.
Data for this survey was collected between August and October of 2013. Invitations were sent to the entire U.S. HIMSS membership, as well as other HIT professionals for whom HIMSS had an e-mail address. Announcements about this survey were also included in HIMSS’ electronic newsletters and on social media websites. Individuals who received the invitation were encouraged to share it with their colleagues. A total of 1,160 responses were received.
