B.S. Health Information Management

The Baccalaureate Degree Health Information Management Program is in Candidacy Status, pending accreditation review by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

With our Health Information Management (HIM) degree program, you’ll be prepared to help streamline patient care issues, as well as manage and improve health information access and delivery. You will gain the knowledge and confidence to work with others to develop policies and processes that provide quick access to critical patient data while ensuring confidentiality and the proper release of patient information.

HIM combines concepts in healthcare management, information technology, and organizational leadership, giving you the skills needed to succeed in the fields of health informatics and health information management. You’ll learn how to integrate the management of health information while adhering to the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Code of Ethics, HIPAA regulations, and organizational standards. 

Add practical value to learned theory during your Professional Practice Experience (PPE). This is the last course in the HIM program curriculum and gives you the opportunity to showcase all of the skills you learned during the program by developing a significant project for an approved healthcare-related agency of your choice.

Franklin’s HIM program is designed for individuals who would like to enter or advance in the health information industry. If you have previous healthcare experience or education, you can earn transfer credit toward your health information management degree or demonstrate your learning through proficiency testing and prior learning evaluations.
