Midland College’s focus on student performance and quality instruction has really paid off for MC students pursuing a career in Health Information Management (HIM). 100% of students that completed the AAS program and took the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) exam have passed – an amazing accomplishment that few colleges in the nation have been able to match.

The RHIT credential is a profession certification necessary for a career as a health information technician. Midland College HIM student’s pass rate exceeds the annual national average of 70% for first time test takers.

Following graduation and receiving the RHIT credential, HIM professionals are responsible for patient information, business and legal aspects of healthcare and assisting with maintaining a viable revenue stream for facilities.

Why pursue a career in Health Information Management? Under a new healthcare initiative, healthcare providers are required to keep secure, electronic patient records. As a result, there is a growing demand for specialists who can code, digitize and create electronic patient records.
