2018 HIMSS U.S. Compensation Survey

What are the compensation trends for healthcare IT workers across the U.S.? What salaries should healthcare IT professionals expect to earn in the U.S. and Canada? Answer these questions with the 2018 HIMSS U.S. Compensation Survey and Salary Calculator.

The 2018 HIMSS U.S. Compensation Survey provides a robust profile of salary and compensation experiences of U.S. health information and technology professionals representing an array of organizations and roles.

Based on the feedback from 885 U.S. health information and technology professionals, the findings yield these notable themes:

  • Consistent with previous HIMSS Compensation Surveys, the average salary of health IT professionals continues to increase - albeit at a slower pace than during the first few years of the study period.
  • Health IT professionals are generally satisfied with their compensation and largely attribute career promotions to merit-based factors.
  • There are a myriad of compensation disparities amongst select population groups. Evidence suggests that on average both females and minorities are paid less than their respective peers.
  • Findings suggest employers are more restrictive in awarding bonuses than salary increases.
