Health Information Management

Do you know students interested in pursuing a career in Health Information Management (HIM)? Have us join your class as we look at health information management and how RRC Polytech can help launch your students into this exciting field.

HIM professionals are the backbone of healthcare. They do not have hands-on contact with patients like many healthcare fields, making it unique. They focus on key areas of health care such as: privacy/confidentiality, patient rights, health governance, health law, health care management, information technology and the electronic health record, statistics, research, medical coding, and data analytics. If your students have an interest in medicine and technology but don’t necessarily want to work hands-on with patients, pursuing a career in the HIM field is right for them! As technology quickly infiltrates the health care sector, exciting roles are evolving in the HIM field.

This presentation is ideal for students in these high school classes: Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry, Applied Math, Pre-Calculus Math, Business Management.
