Marymount’s Health Information Management program offers a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to prepare you for a professional career in health information management. Such opportunities are available in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, and related health facilities and involve the responsible management of health information systems consistent with medical, administrative, ethical, and legal requirements of the health care delivery system.
Health information management professionals play a critical role in managing the collection, maintenance, and analysis of the medical data that health care professionals rely on to deliver, manage, and finance quality health care.
The program combines knowledge of health care systems, information technology, and medical information management techniques, such as medical coding. You will get ample opportunity to practice the knowledge gained through hands-on experiences, inquiry-based learning, an internship, and a final capstone project working with a real client.
The HIM/HI (degree level) program is in Candidacy Status, pending accreditation review by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).
