Health Information Management

Health Information Management

Designed for the dynamic field of health information management (HIM), this program integrates the disciplines of medicine, computer technology, and business management. Students who are interested in studying diseases and treatments but are not interested in hands-on patient care will find this a challenging career path.

The graduate is prepared to perform technical and supervisory duties in organizing, analyzing, and generating health data for reimbursement, planning, quality improvement, research, and the legal issues surrounding the release of health information. Employment opportunities exist in a broad range of settings, such as hospitals, home health care, nursing homes, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), physicians' offices, consulting, computer software companies, and government agencies.

The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM), in cooperation with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
