Health Information Technology

The Health Information Technology Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).   Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the American Health Information Management Association's credentialing exam for qualifications as a Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT).   The RHIT performs such functions as ensuring the quality of medical records by verifying their completeness, accuracy, and proper entry into computer systems; using computer applications to assemble and analyze patient data for improving patient care and controlling costs; responding to authorized inquiries for insurance and legal purposes; and may specialize in coding and classifying diagnoses and procedures for reimbursement and research.

Due to a limited number of spaces available, meeting all of the criteria does not guarantee anyone admission to the program.
