What is Health Information Management?

Health Information Management Technology (HIMT) is a five-semester, fully online program* with credentials built into the curriculum that you'll earn along the way. In fact, you can earn a medical billing and medical coding certificate within the first three semesters of the program.  This valuable credential will equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to gain employment while you continue your education and makes you eligible to sit for various external medical coding and/or medical billing certification exams.

* While instruction for this program is completely online, during the Professional Practice portion of your training, where you will gain experience and meet curricular competencies, you will work with a medical facility or company that may require on-site attendance. 

The HIMT program responds to the education and workforce needs of our community by providing support and promotion of student access, student success, and community workforce development to help students obtain external national credentials in health information management technology and medical billing and coding.
* Demonstrate proficiency in determining diagnosis and procedure codes according to official guidelines.
