Description

The health IT 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 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

The two programs are designed to prepare students to enter the health IT workforce with a blend of theory and hands-on application, culminating in an internship or practicum at a real-world professional healthcare organization.
