The top-paying states for health IT workers

As healthcare IT roles become increasingly difficult to fill, individuals looking to fill such positions may have more options.

The ability to work remotely enables health IT workers to work at hospitals and health systems across the nation, making it potentially more relevant than ever to explore how yearly wages differ from state to state.

The mean annual wage for health information technologists and medical registrars in the U.S. is $65,280. However, 16 states and Washington, D.C., pay health IT workers above the annual mean wage, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' most recent data from May 2022.
