Industry research has identified Healthcare Information Technology to be in high demand, thanks to it’s hybrid blend of clinical health practices and information technology.
Programs include the subjects of front office protocols and technologies, computer information systems, finance, information technology, and legal and ethical issues throughout the courses.
This diverse curriculum allows HCIT students to select from a variety of workplace settings such as medical offices, acute care facilities, independent businesses and local government institutions.
HCIT is the link for health care providers, technology designers and information technology; and is bridging patients, payers and regulatory agencies with healthcare information.
There are several pathways from the HCIT model to HIM (Healthcare Information Management) practitioners that will demonstrate leadership and management of health information in all formats (paper, scanned, or computerized forms), and are a critical component of the electronic health record (EHR) work-force.
