Health Information Management Schools and Colleges

Health information managers are required to hold bachelorís degrees. Many opt to earn masterís degrees to improve their job opportunities and earning potential, but entry-level jobs can be obtained with bachelorís degrees. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) administers certification programs for health information managers with college degrees. Passing the certification test qualifies managers to be known as Registered Health Information Administrators (RHIAs).

Undergraduates studying health information management are typically required to complete health information systems management, electronic health records, research methods, and statistics courses. They also take classes covering these topics: quality and financial management, health systems security, and medical ethics. Seniors are often required to complete a capstone project where they conduct research and prepare a paper about a topic relevant to their field. Many colleges and universities now offer online health information management programs for students with busy schedules.

Individuals currently working in the health information management industry often earn masterís degrees to enhance promotion opportunities. People with bachelorís degrees in other fields interested in beginning health information management careers typically make the transition by earning a masterís degree in this field. Students in masterís degree programs learn similar concepts as students in bachelorís programs. All health information management students learn about medical ethics and law, medical terminology, financial management, and statistics.
