The Ohio State University
The field of health information management and systems (HIMS) represents the body of knowledge and practice that assures the availability of healthcare information to facilitate real-time healthcare delivery and critical health related decision-making for multiple purposes across diverse organizations, settings and disciplines. It is concerned with the management of resources to collect, store, retrieve, interpret and communicate healthcare information that deals with patient care, medico-legal issues, research, and the planning, provision and evaluation of health care services.
HIMS is a great undergraduate program for students interested in pursuing health information management right after graduation or for those students interested in pursuing graduate degrees in physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), hospital administration, medicine, physician assistance, health informatics, business, law or public health.
The Federal Department of Education requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information for “programs that prepare students for gainful employment in recognized occupations.”
