The Master of Health Informatics and Information Management (MHIIM) degree program is an online program that will prepare students to develop information systems for quality patient care; facility reimbursement; medical research; health planning; and health care evaluation as required by the changing health care environment.
Upon completion of the program, graduates will have a thorough knowledge of health care data resources administration, health care data security oversight, strategic and operational information resource planning, clinical data analysis, clinical classification systems, medical vocabularies, enterprise-wide master patient index systems, clinical decision support systems, information systems development and implementation of systems such as electronic health records. Two tracks in the MHIIM degree program allow students to emphasize health informatics or health information management. Additional electives taken in the Health Information Management track allow the student to pursue eligibility for the RHIA certification exam of the American Health Information Management Association.
UMMC also offers a baccalaureate program through two routes: 1) a traditional online program; and 2) an online progression program designed for individuals who already possess the RHIT credential from the American Health Information Management Association.
