About the Program: Central Arizona College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and a participant of the Higher Learning Commission's Academic Quality Improvement Program. Additionally the Central Arizona College Health Information Technology (HIT) program received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Health Information Management (CAHIIM) in November CAHIIM is the educational accreditation agency for degree granting programs in Health Information Management.

Our curriculum completes with a 4 credits Practicum experience within a healthcare facility under the guidance of the facility staff and CAC staff. Our program not only prepares the student for the RHIT certification examination; it also prepares the student for their career by incorporating hands-on experience in the field, professional experiences that will set our students above others applying for entry-level positions. Program Mission: To provide an intellectual and positive learning environment that prepares students with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to produce competent and progressive health information professionals utilizing the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) entry-level competencies and feedback from all communities of interest to include internal, regional and national for continual quality improvement.

4 Code of Ethics The code of ethics, adopted by the members of the American Health Information Management Association, defines the standards of behavior which promote ethical conduct. As Health Information Management students, you are bound by this Code of Ethics. Course Sequence and Prerequisite Courses In general, students can determine the level of a course by its number. Courses numbered 100 to 199 are usually first-year courses; courses numbered are usually second-year courses. Because courses with lower numbers may be prerequisites for courses with higher numbers, students should complete lower numbers first. All prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher to make the student eligible for the next course. HIM Student Comprehensive Exam Prior to graduation and as part of the practicum, HIM students will be required to complete a comprehensive-mock exam.. This exam will cover all professional courses and is designed to prepare students to take the Registration Exam that is administered by the American Health Information Management Association. Evaluations The student will complete evaluations of effectiveness on instructors, courses, clinical instructors, and clinical education settings as a component of the program s assessment plan. Results are summarized by the Program Director and forwarded to the appropriate parties. Survey results are discussed with various communities of interest within the college and at the clinical education settings. Results are also relayed and discussed during the Advisory Meeting and Faculty meetings.
