The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Health Information Technology degree program improves the health care delivery system through the education and training of students to become knowledgeable about the management of health information systems. Health care is the largest industry in the U.S. and there is enormous demand for skilled health information technology professionals to design, operate and maintain the technology that makes the health care system run. There's a high demand for health information technologists like clinical coders, data analysts, patient information coordinators and health record technicians.
