An associate's degree will help you align your skills with the fast paced Health Information Management world in New York relatively quickly. From the time you get started on an associate's degree, you can estimate about two years before you have it completed.

You do not need an associate's degree in order to pursue a bachelor's: However, getting an associate's will often cut your four year study to only two years. You will learn in many different classes, some of them directly related to Health Information Systems, while others will touch on the subjects and ideas that contribute to our common intellectual heritage as human beings.
If you want to exceed the median income in Health Information Management of about $32,000, it is a good idea to take the plunge and pursue a master's degree.
