Full Curriculum


The Davenport University Health Information Management Bachelor of Science program prepares individuals to assume an emerging key role in supporting the electronic and technological infrastructure for health services delivery. Students in the program utilize an electronic health record system which provides students with a learning experience that uses state-of-the-art technology and software. Health information managers are experts in managing patient health information and medical records, administering computer information systems, collecting and analyzing patient data, and using classification systems and medical terminologies. These professionals work in a broad range of settings throughout the healthcare industry. These include the continuum of care delivery organizations, including hospitals, multispecialty clinics and physician practices, long-term care, mental health, and other ambulatory care settings. The profession has seen significant expansion in non-patient care settings, with careers in managed care and insurance companies, software vendors, consulting services, government agencies, education, and pharmaceutical companies.

Students successfully completing this CAHIIM accredited program are eligible to take the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) exam offered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).

To be prepared for success on the national certification exam and entry into the HIM workforce, it is strongly recommended that students in the HIM BS program meet the most current catalog year requirements.
