Minor in Health Information Management
The minor in Health Information Management requires 19 semester credit hours.
Health Information Management (HIM) is the profession dedicated to the effective management of patient information and healthcare data needed to deliver quality treatment and care to the public. The fundamentals of the HIM profession continue to evolve over time, becoming less paper-based and increasingly electronic. HIM plays a critical role in the successful implementation of electronic health records and ensures that providers, healthcare organizations, and patients have access to the right health information when and where it is needed while maintaining the highest standards of data integrity, confidentiality and security. The minor in Health Information Management is designed to enhance other degrees on which students are working.
HIM academic advising is required to assure appropriate sequencing and progression requirements are maintained.
Completion of the HIM minor does not meet eligibility requirements for the Registered Health Information Administrator certification examination offered by the American Health Information Management Association.
