Career Move to Data Analyst

    Good Afternoon,

    I have been working for the last four years as an applications systems analyst. I am considering a career change to a data analyst position for a state public health department that would involve some software support but would also involve data analyzing and compiling statistical reports. Software support is something I'm very comfortable with but data analysis would be a new realm. I am seeing a lot of jobs in data analysis for HIM professionals and would love some insight on whether this career path is right for me. I am looking for some insight from HIM professionals that work as a data analyst. What skills do you find most useful in your job and what do you do in you day-to-day job? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Regards,
