What Is HIMT?

HIMT professionals are experts in managing patient health information, administering computer information systems, and coding diagnoses and procedures for services provided to patients. They maintain, collect and analyze the data that doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers rely on to deliver quality healthcare. As the field transitions from paper to electronic health records, the traditional HIM skills of coding, data entry, and recordkeeping are no longer enough. The future belongs to HIM professionals who are fluent in technology and who understand how to get the most from the data.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for health information professionals are expected to increase by 22 percent between 2012 and 2022—far outpacing the average for all occupations (11 percent) in the United States. In 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked health informatics and information management as one of the top nine new majors in the country, stating that "the need is huge for professionals who can help acquire, manage, and use information to improve health and manage payments."

I selected the HIMT program at UW-Green Bay for several reasons, the 1st being that it’s offered entirely online, which was great for me since I work full-time. The 2nd reason I chose this program is because it’s an accredited program through CAHIM. I will always cherish my time at UWGB, all of my Professors were knowledgeable & always willing to assist me when I had questions.

I wanted to go back to school full time, while working full time, so I enrolled in the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay HIMT program. I did this because I thought, you know what - I could be the change in this scenario, & I wanted to help patients have a better future. What you will learn, who you will learn it from & with, will leave a lasting impact on your life and your career.
