Kaskaskia College will be offering a new Health Information Technology Program beginning in the fall 2019 Semester. In establishing the program, Dean of Nursing and Health Sciences Julie Obermark says that the College’s goal is to produce graduates who meet employer’s needs.
Health Information Technology is a unique profession that combines facets of medicine, data management and information technology that ensures the accuracy, integrity, and security of patient data. HIT professionals can find employment at hospitals, medical offices, pharmacies, insurance companies and more.
An important part of the health care industry, health information technicians are responsible for the organization and management of health information data for hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and more. As with many health care related field’s the need for health information is growing, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting job growth to continue to grow as much as 13% over the next few years.
