Health Information Technology

Health Information Technology (HIT) professionals play a critical role in maintaining, collecting and analyzing the data that health care providers rely on to deliver quality health care. They are experts in managing patient health information and medical records, operating computer information systems, coding diagnosis and procedures for reimbursement, and maintaining quality control of health records. Health Information Technicians serve as medical coders, clinical data specialists, data quality managers, and information security officers.

The Health Information Technology program is a limited access program. Core courses will be offered on the St. Augustine Campus only. Practical experience is obtained at regional hospitals and clinics.
