2 SICCM/Health Information Technology Program (Medical Record Technology) The Health Information Technology (two-year) Associate Degree of Applied Science Program is offered through the Southern Illinois Collegiate Common Market (SICCM). SICCM is a cooperative program with John A. Logan College, Kaskaskia College, Rend Lake College, Shawnee Community College, and Southeastern Illinois College. Each fall, a maximum of five students are admitted from each campus. Entrance requirements are based on the ASSET test (limit of two ASSET tests a year) taken by interested students. Test scores are compiled and top ranking students are admitted until the allotted six slots are filled. If a campus does not fill all student slots, the vacant slots are given to the remaining campuses to utilize. Students register for all courses, both general studies and health information, at his/her home campus. The program curriculum includes general studies, which are all taken at the home campus, and health information courses (professional). It should be noted that medical terminology, advanced medical terminology and medical transcription are all required courses that the home campus offers. Also, each individual campus total HIT program credit requirement is slightly different based on differences in credit requirements of general study courses. Some professional courses are taught in the evening and some during the day based on part-time faculty availability. No professional courses are taught on the weekend. Only one section of the professional courses in the health information program is offered in a semester. Generally, the professional courses are taught at the SICCM centralized lab. For any given semester, courses at each campus are scheduled one after the other in order to reduce student transportation requirements. This requirement means that some students may be required to travel an hour or more in order to take classes. (Many students of the program carpool.) Clinical practicums are required in the second year of the program. These consist of two full days a week spent in health information departments of area hospitals. Students will be assigned to clinical sites as close to their home as possible, but students may have to travel considerable distances. The SICCM HIT Program is accredited by the Commission of Accreditation of Health Informatics and Information Management of the American Health Information Management Association. Students who have completed the program will be eligible to take the national certification examination offered by the American Health Information Management Association. The certified graduate may then use the title Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT).

3 Admission Procedure Students should apply for admission to the HIT program through their home community college. Contact the college's Admission Office to begin the process.
