HIM has been named one of the 20 fastest growing occupations in the United States by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about this exciting field from a panel of experts, including:
- Cynthia Pugliese, Director of Health Information Management for Hartford HealthCare
- Dr. Frank M. Valier, HIM Program Coordinator for Charter Oak
- Martin Cohen, RHIT, President of the Connecticut Health Information Management Association (CTHIMA)
The open house will take place at Charter Oak State College, 55 Manafort Drive in New Britain, CT. Refreshments will be served. There will be a live webcast of the event for people living out-of-state who are interested in hearing more about the program.
Developed by experts in this fast-growing field, Charter Oak's new online bachelor's degree in Health Information Management equips students for the electronic management of sensitive patient health information and healthcare organization revenue cycles. Once approved by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM), this degree will prepare graduates to sit for the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) licensure exam. The program is structured to provide a professional education with a comprehensive curriculum and is guided by the principle of quality health care through quality information.
