HIMA497 - Health Information Management Practicum


This guided health information management (HIM) practicum provides an overview of health information services with hands-on and reality-based experiences in a health information department, or related site that will reinforce and enhance classroom learning. Students will also acquire technical skills through guided simulated online lab activities designed to simulate the activities that would be completed in an HIM department setting. Students will evaluate and utilize relevant HIM computer and software applications. This course is intended to give the student practical experience in HIM, and during the course students will employ practical application of previously studied theory, principles, and knowledge in data retention, retrieval, storage assembly, deficiency analysis, physician communication, and release of information. Prerequisite: Students may take the practicum after all other Major Required courses are completed.
