Description

Students enrolled in the Health Information Technology (HIT) Program at Fisher College learn to organize, analyze, evaluate, compile, compute and code health data, while receiving hands-on training with state-of-the-art software applications. A strong foundation is provided in health-care delivery systems, storage and retrieval of paper, hybrid, and electronic medical records, and legal issues governing privacy, security and confidentiality of personal health information.

The HIT program is in the Fisher College Division of Continuing Education. Students have the opportunity to take classes in the six eight-week terms offered throughout the year in a traditional classroom setting, fully online, or a combination of both.

The Fisher College HIT program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM). Graduates who meet the requirements of the accredited program are eligible to take the national qualifying examination for certification as a Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
