Description

Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology is the only college in Massachusetts to offer a Bachelor's Degree in Health Information Technology, or Health IT. Health IT refers to the use of technologies to store, share, and analyze health information to improve patient care. This fast-growing field encompasses a range of positions that involve the development, implementation, and maintenance of computerized health information systems. With the goal of enhancing the quality of patient care and reduce costs, these systems are needed to enable the digitization, storage, and the secure exchange of health information among various clinicians across networks and web services within hospitals and other healthcare settings. To meet this growing demand for skilled health IT workers, Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology has developed the following degree programs:

  • Bachelor of Science (BS) in Health Information Technology
  • Associate of Science (AS) in Health Information Technology
