Health Information Technology

Our program in Health Information Technology is designed to teach you how to use technology to collect, analyze, monitor, maintain and report health data. These functions include, among other duties, processing requests for the release of personal health information, the coding of clinical information, processing and using health data for clinical quality management, billing and reimbursement, and compliance while protecting patient privacy.

The training program is divided into eight, 10-week quarters and incorporates a blended schedule consisting of courses taken both on campus and online. Since this program consists of an online component, a laptop computer will be provided. Students may choose to use their own laptop if it meets the requirements needed to fulfill the online component of the HIT curriculum. The program is composed of general education, anatomy and physiology, core health information technology, and clinical practicum courses. Each quarter is comprised of prescribed subjects or studies that build upon each other.

What will students do in this field:

A Health Information Technologist plays a critical role in monitoring, maintaining, collecting, analyzing, and reporting critical data that doctors, nurses and other health care providers rely on to provide quality health care to their patients.
