JACKSON -- West Tennessee Healthcare is proud to announce Tracy Hickey has received certification as a Certified Professional in Health Informatics. Tracy serves as Director of Health Information Management for West Tennessee Healthcare.

Informatics is an interdisciplinary field that involves the application of data science, informational technologies, and human-technology interactions to health-related practice. The Certified Professional in Health Informatics certification is earned through a combination of education, experience, and performance on a certification exam.

According to AHIMA, the certification exam was developed and validated by a panel of experts who were chosen to represent the diversity of the health informatics field, including practitioners, employers and academics. The process and the resulting exam were overseen by The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM).

Hickey began her career with West Tennessee Healthcare over 28 years ago. Throughout this time, she has held various leadership positions. She began as a Prospective Payment Coordinator before moving to Assistant Director of Health Information Management. In 1998, she was promoted to Director in 1989, a role she continues to hold in addition to her other responsibilities within the West Tennessee Healthcare system.

Tracy Hickey resides in Jackson with her husband David and daughter Gini.
