What is Health Information Management?
Health information technicians are skilled in classifying, analyzing, and managing information needed by patients, care facilities, and insurers. This program is one of only two such accredited on-site programs in Oklahoma. Graduates will develop knowledge of medical terminology, disease processes, and pharmacology and will be eligible to pursue national certification. Locally and nationally there is a shortage of trained professionals in this exciting field. Associate degree or certificate-only options are available. For more information about Rose State's HIT Degree Program and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and the its state division OKHIMA, click the links in the right hand column of this page.
