At SNHU, we designed our BS in Health Information Management (HIM) to align with the 2014 baccalaureate degree entry-level competencies developed by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), an organization of HIM professionals around the world. These competencies were created to ensure that today’s education pathways meet tomorrow’s workforce needs.
AHIMA defines the educational competencies required of a HIM professional and administers the Registered Health Information Management Administrator (RHIA) examination. One of the eligibility requirements to sit for the RHIA exam is that students must have graduated from a program accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management (CAHIIM).
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).
