    Health information managers (HIMS) work with administrative and clinical staffs in health care facilities to provide the best possible information resources, a necessity for quality health care. HIMs design and maintain health information systems to collect, assess, and disseminate clinical and administrative data. These data are utilized by health care professionals in education, research, utilization management, quality assessment and improvement, and decision making. Health services administrators utilize the data in financial management, facilities planning, and operational and risk management. HIMs may find employment in various types of facilities, including hospitals, managed care organizations, ambulatory care centers, insurance companies, local and state governmental agencies, research and education centers, and long-term care facilities.

    The baccalaureate certificate program allows the student who already holds the bachelor's (or higher) degree from an accredited institution to enter the HIM program without taking basic core curriculum courses. Certificate students are eligible to take the HIM professional courses and to apply to write the national certification exam.
    The program requires four hours (two separate two-hour courses) of Clinical/Seminar. It also requires a six-hour internship.
