Health Information Management (HIM) is a healthcare profession that includes several STEM occupations combining knowledge and skills from healthcare, informatics, information technology, and business areas such as finance, legal compliance, management, and leadership. Credentialed HIM Professionals work in all healthcare settings alongside clinical and administrative colleagues on interprofessional teams. As healthcare becomes increasingly dependent on data, information, analysis, and technology, Health Information professionals ensure the availability, quality, integrity, usefulness, and security of health information required for evidence-based clinical decisions, reimbursement, compliance, and healthcare business operations. The program is in a two-plus-two format—two years of general core curriculum and prerequisite courses followed by two years of courses in the HIM professional phase of the curriculum.

  • The Department of Health Information Management is a HIMSS Approved Education Partner and Academic Organizational Affiliate. The BSHIM and MHIM programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

    With these accreditations and affiliations, graduates from our HIM programs are eligible and prepared to distinguish themselves in the healthcare workforce with marketable skills and prestigious industry-recognized credentials.


  • Graduates from our accredited programs are recruited by hospitals, medical practices, government agencies, software and technology vendors, insurance companies, academic institutions, cybersecurity companies, healthcare reimbursement companies, consulting firms, and many other organizations involved with the management of health information and technology. Anywhere health data exists, there is a need for health information professionals. Many HIM professionals are able to work from home!
