Lead and Succeed in the New Age of HIMT
New regulations and technologies are dramatically changing the roles and educational requirements of health information professionals. Traditional HIM skills are no longer enough. That’s why we created the University of Wisconsin Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology (HIMT).This 61-credit online degree completion program is one of the only programs that teaches essential skills in both health information management (HIM) and health information technology (HIT)—providing the new HIMT skills you need to succeed in today’s ever more technology-focused healthcare environments.
UW HIMT is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and four University of Wisconsin Campuses—UW-Green Bay, UW-Parkside, UW-Stevens Point, and UW-La Crosse. The HIM track offered by UW-Green Bay and UW-Parkside is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM). UW-Stevens Point is in candidacy status, pending accreditation review by CAHIIM.
Learn Tomorrow’s Critical HIMT Skills Today
“The UW HIMT program offers our students the unique opportunity to complete both CAHIIM and AHIMA competencies in our management track as well as HIMSS competencies in our technology track. Whether students choose to pursue one or both tracks, they will learn skills that will position them to be leaders and influencers in the healthcare industry.”
