3 Introduction In support of the mission of St. Petersburg College, faculty committees established several specific goals. Two of these goals, as stated in the College s Mission Statement are to: Expand student access to baccalaureate programs, bachelor's degrees, graduate degrees, and careers; as well as prepare lower division students for successful transfer into baccalaureate programs through the associate in arts and articulated associate in science degree programs Perform continuous institutional self-evaluation and efficient and effective operations to assure a culture of excellence in student services and academic success It is the intent of St. Petersburg College to incorporate continuous improvement practices in all areas. Assessment reports provide comparisons of present and past results which are used to identify topics where improvement is possible. SPC has traditionally used past results as a vital tool in achieving its commitment to continuous improvement. St. Petersburg College Page 3 of 28 - September 14, 2009

4 I. Major Learning Outcome #1 Students will develop knowledge and skills at the recall, application, and analysis levels in the content area of Healthcare Data Structure, Content and Use. II. Introduction Use of Past Results: SPC graduates from the Health Information Management Associate in Science (HIM A.S.) degree program for the three year period of 2003, 2004, and 2005 demonstrated mean/average scores on the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination that exceeded the national means for all RHIT exam candidates for scores in Subdomain 1.A. Healthcare Data Structure, Content, and Use. These results can be interpreted to conclude that the SPC HIM A.S. degree program is exceeding the expectations outlined in the Criteria for Success. III. Methodology s of Assessment: The results of the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination were utilized to assess the Health Information Management program. Date(s) of Administration: 2006, 2007, and 2008 Assessment Method: Conduct Domain/Sub-domain analysis of performance of SPC graduates on the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination. The national RHIT exam results are distributed annually to HIM program directors. A detailed breakdown is provided which compares the performance of SPC Health Information Management Associate in Science (HIM A.S.) degree graduates with national means/averages of all exam candidates. Assessment Instrument: Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination Population: Upon successful completion of the SPC Health Information Management Associate in Science (HIM A.S.) degree, the graduate will apply to take the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) examination administered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). St. Petersburg College Page 4 of 28 - September 14, 2009

5 Domain Specifications: The student will acquire knowledge and skills at the recall, application, and analysis levels in the content area of Healthcare Data Structure, Content and Use. IV. Criteria for Success Equal or exceed the RHIT national exam pass rate outcome within the major content area of Healthcare Data Structure, Content, and Use based on results from new (first-time) exam candidates. V. Summary of Assessment Findings Testing Period Number of Students SPC National Difference Outcome Did not meet Did not meet. VI. Discussion and Analysis of Assessment Findings SPC graduates from the HIM A.S. degree program for the three year period of 2006, 2007, and 2008 demonstrated below mean/average scores on the RHIT examination. The s were not met in two out of the three years reporting period for the national means for all RHIT exam candidates for scores in Sub-domain 1.A. Healthcare Data Structure, Content, and Use. These results can be interpreted to conclude that the SPC HIM A.S. degree program requires an action plan to increase the expectations outlined in the Criteria for Success. VII. Action Plan and Timetable for Implementation St. Petersburg College Page 5 of 28 - September 14, 2009

6 Based on the analysis of the results the following Action Plan Items have been selected for implementation: Ref. # B. Enhance Curriculum & Faculty Development B1.

Clinical Classification Systems ICD-9 Coding. However, the SPC mean in this content area was below the national mean for all RHIT exam candidates in Further analysis reveals that this continues to be an area of concern which was carried over from the previous three year assessment. Additional steps are being taken to ensure this will not remain the same for the next reporting cycle. See action plan for details. VII. Action Plan and Timetable for Implementation Based on the analysis of the results the following Action Plan Items have been selected for implementation: A. Enable Greater Student Success A1.

Date to Accomplish 6/2010 This action item applies to MLO 2 and MLO 3. B. Enhance Curriculum & Faculty Development B4. We will alter the method of assessment in the classes to ensure that 6/2010 student's have obtained the basic coding skills prior to moving forward in our program. In addition, as mentioned in the action plan for MLO 1, we will be adding new textbooks to our coding classes that provide a more learner centered style in addition to more hands on practical coding rather than the previous style which centered around a traditional testing approach. This action item applies to MLO 2 and MLO 3. I.
