Where You Could Go

Health Information Technology is a pathway with credentials that expand as your education progresses. Students who complete the first five terms of coursework, may take the national exam to receive a Certified Coding Associated (CCA) credential. Many students begin working as a CCA while continuing their work toward their associate degree. When they receive their associate degree, they may become a Registered Health Information Technician (after successfully completing the RHIT Certification Examination).

Transfer opportunities exist to continue toward a bachelor’s degree. Students with a bachelor’s degree will be eligible to take the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) certification exam.

Career Outlook

Job demand is predicted to increase in the future as the standardization, availability and security of medical records continues to expand.
