2015 HIMSS Salary Calculator & Compensation Survey

The HIT Industry – What can you expect to earn in HIT?

The HIMSS Compensation Survey provides health information technology (IT) professionals with a tool to compare salaries and compensation packages. This overview provides summary information on the salaries that IT professionals earn, and whether or not they have received a raise or bonus in the past year. This information is also analyzed in key demographic categories, including organizational net revenue, facility type, geographic region, gender, professional level and length of service. HIMSS members also have exclusive access to an on-line salary estimator, job descriptions and benefits information.
