Health Information Technology Program

medical recordsOrganize. Communicate. Advance.

The U.S. Department of Labor states that employment in the Health Information Technology (HIT) field is projected to grow nearly twice as fast as the average for all occupations in future years!

As the medical industry becomes increasingly dependent on digital communication and recordkeeping, the demand for skilled employees who can collect and analyze healthcare data is critical to manage vital information for their services.

HIT professionals are responsible for the organization and accurate maintenance of computerized patient medical records. They may also be responsible for the timely and accurate submission of complex insurance documents. Successful graduates can find employment at hospitals, medical offices, and insurance companies in positions, including medical office manager, medical transcriptionist, medical records technician, and medical coding specialist. With an associate degree in Health Information Technology, you can serve your community while also building a new career for yourself.
