We are very pleased to announce that the bachelor of science Health Information Management program at Charter Oak State College has been officially accredited by the Commission on Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM). CAHIIM is the globally recognized and trusted accreditation organization for Health Informatics and Health Information Management (HIM) education programs to ensure a high quality program that prepares graduates for a workforce that meets the challenge of an information-intensive healthcare environment.
Only graduates of a CAHIIM accredited HIM program can sit for the exam to earn the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) credential. This credential is important to assure employers that the graduate is prepared as an entry-level HIM professional. Currently, the HIM program at Charter Oak has close to 80 students and is expected to continue to grow to meet the needs of the local and national need for qualified HIM professionals.
