Program Advantages

While the physicians, nurses, and healthcare team are taking care of you and your loved ones, health information management (HIM) professionals are the ones taking care of your information, ensuring it's protected, private, captured, stored and made available when you need it. From coding your information for payment by insurance companies, research, reporting, strategic planning, etc., we are there to manage the entire process for health information and more. This program is offered online.
