Health Information Technology gives students the knowledge and skills they need to help ensure the quality of healthcare through managing health information without direct patient contact. The medical world depends on health information specialists to collect data, interpret it, protect it, and determine how it can be used. This includes skills in the areas of analyzing and coding protected patient health information. An Associate of Applied Science degree is earned upon successful completion of the program. MCC's Health Information Technology program is a program that meets the education requirements for a Health Information Technologist in MS, and qualifies graduates to take the credentialing examination through the American Health Information Management Association.
