Description

The Health Information Management (HIM) program prepares students for entry-level health information technology positions. The program provides graduates with the opportunity to acquire concentrations in either Revenue Management or Data Management to meet current and emerging industry requirements for the health information professional. The program also provides the ability to transfer into a four-year institution. The program consists of ten core HIM courses. Students have the option of selecting two elective HIM courses for Revenue Management: Coding II and Coding III or selecting two elective courses for Data Management: Data Analysis and Database Technology I. Students may choose to specialize in both concentrations. Students may complete the program via web conferencing or on campus.
With a Health Information Management (HIM) degree, you’ll play a critical role in managing patient information. Health information professionals are charged with protecting patient privacy, providing secure information to legitimate users, and maintaining effective health information systems. Federal laws requiring the use of electronic health records and development of health information networks will continue to drive the need for credentialed information managers in the next decade and beyond. Delaware Tech’s comprehensive HIM program will provide you with the skills to compile, analyze, manage and report health information for a variety of applications. The program incorporates clinical experiences that will allow you to put your knowledge into practice.
Successful HIM graduates will work in diverse environments including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, physician offices, health departments and corporate settings such as pharmaceutical companies and healthcare information technology companies. If you’ve always wanted to be part of a technology-driven field, are detail-oriented, and have strong computer skills, Health Information Management may be the career for you!. The Health Information Management associate degree program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM)
