The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Health Information Technology degree improves the health care delivery system through educating and training 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 technologist jobs including clinical coders, health information technicians, data analysts, patient information coordinators and health record technicians. In addition to ensuring that health records are accurate and complete, registered health information technologists must maintain all health records according to federal, state and local laws.
Students will gain technical knowledge of health systems, data entry and retrieval, and a strong technology background, with regulatory knowledge to equip students to modify and recommend medical record technology solutions.
