Health Records Information Technology

The Health Records IT certificates are designed to quickly train students in the kind of computerized health information systems that are being installed by hospitals, medical and dental offices across the country. These IT systems make it possible for health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use and sharing of health information in electronic form. The electronic systems are replacing inefficient paper records and allow health providers to quickly review and update a patient’s medical history, which can be shared electronically as patients move to other health systems and/or to other geographic locations. Students completing these programs will support the IT systems that are in place in various health care related facilities.
