Students in the Health Information Technology program at Ivy Tech get instruction using the American Health Information Management Association Virtual Lab which provides students with hands-on learning using the most current technology in healthcare facilities today.  Students are also provided the opportunity to extern in our community healthcare facilities that could lead to a permanent position after graduation.  Since our students have been exposed to so many hands-on learning opportunities, our students pass the Registered Health Information Technician certification at rates well above the national average.

The Health Information Technology program is a selective admission program. When you apply to the College, you will be accepted into Healthcare Support with a concentration in Health Information Technology while you complete the prerequisite requirements. The Health Information Technology program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process. Contact your campus of interest below for more details.  In addition the Health Information Technology associate degree programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM). Please check the locations below for accreditation status.

In addition to meeting the requirements outlined in the Essential Functions, students who are admitted to the program will be required to pay for and submit to a criminal background check, drug testing and physical exam.  The details and process will be provided at an orientation.  Please contact the program faculty for more detailed information.
