Health Information Technology
Associate of Applied Science Degree
NAU’s Associate of Applied Science degree in Health Information Technology (HIT) is an excellent career choice if you see yourself working in the in-demand health care field, but not directly with patients. As a graduate of this program, it may be your job to verify the completeness and accuracy of medical records and data entry into computer systems to ensure medical record quality; to use technology to analyze for quality and efficiency of patient care; to code patient diagnoses and procedures for research or reimbursement purposes; or to work in specialized registries that maintain data for medical research. For a more hands on career path in the health industry, check out our other opportunities for those looking to get into the field or for those looking to further their career paths, particularly if you're looking for an online RN to BSN program.
The HIT program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).
