The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 22% rate of growth for general medical records and health information technicians between 2012 and 2022, which far outpaces the average for all other occupations in the United States. Immaculata’s program will prepare health information professionals to analyze, protect, and share medical data for clinical, financial, and legal uses. Students will gain a foundation in business, science, and information technology to help care for patients by caring for their health data. Courses will cover the interaction between various segments of the health care industry, data privacy, coding systems, clinical applications, and medical terminologies.
“Health information management is the fastest-growing part of health care and will continue to be into the future. IU’s HIM program will prepare individuals for rewarding and diverse careers in all aspects of the health-related industry,” commented Robert Rimkis, DHSc, chair of Immaculata’s Department of Health Sciences and Services.
