Dr. Jamie Loggains serves as an Associate Professor and as the Faculty Chair, Health Programs at Peirce College. In this role she is responsible for providing oversight of the undergraduate healthcare-related degree and certificate programs.
She earned her A.A. from Ozarka College (Melbourne, Arkansas), her A.A.S. in Health Information Technology from Gwynedd Mercy College (Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania), her B.S. in Healthcare Administration from Drexel University (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), her M.S. in Health Informatics from the University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, Illinois), and her Ed.D. in Higher Education Leadership from Maryville University (St. Louis, Missouri).

Dr. Loggains' first love was healthcare reimbursement. Prior to pursuing a career in academia, she gained knowledge and experience in the field by working as a billing coordinator for a freestanding surgery center and a medical office coordinator in orthopedics. This experience allows Dr. Loggains to bring working knowledge into the classroom, which helps to make the material relatable to what students are learning.

If you ask Dr. Loggains what her favorite thing is about teaching at Peirce College, she will tell you that it's the students. She believes that "Students who choose Peirce have a specific career goal in mind, and they conquer many obstacles to walk across that stage in June to accept their certificate and/or degree. Juggling school, home and work responsibilities is not easy but our students do it and they do it well."

When it is time to relax, Dr. Loggains enjoys watching Arkansas Razorbacks football, working in her garden and spending time with her two grandchildren.

    The full-time faculty members of Peirce College's Bachelor of Science in Health Information Administration degree program are dedicated to preparing graduates for employment. They teach our students the lessons and knowledge necessary for assuming roles in administrative and managerial positions in hospitals, multi-specialty clinics and physician practices, long-term care, mental health and other ambulatory settings, software vendors, consulting firms, education and pharmaceutical managed care organizations, health insurance companies, health marketing firms, non-profit community-related organizations and associations, government agencies (local, state and federal), law firms focused on healthcare issues and other healthcare regulatory bodies.

    Early in the program, the faculty focuses on advanced quality management and performance improvement in healthcare, teaching students about benchmarking, utilization and resource management, risk management, case management and critical paths. They also instill in students crucial knowledge about HIPAA regulations and compliance in regards to privacy and security in healthcare. Plus, you'll learn from them proper healthcare research methodology, including lessons on surveying, observations, experimentation and quasi-experimentation and epidemiological research. And you'll also receive teachings from the faculty on how to operate in a modern electronic health record environment.

    As you move through the program, the faculty will instruct you on strategic planning and organizational development in healthcare, which means you'll learn how to perform an organizational assessment and bencmarking as well as lessons in problem solving, negotiation techniques and decision making. They'll also impart their knowledge of HIM compliance for hospital outpatient services, physician practices, long-term care facilities, inpatient rehabilitation, home health, long-term acute care and behavioral health.

    Finally, Peirce's Health Information Administration degree faculty will lead you in a professional practice workshop, a capstone project proving your understanding of all previous lessons and in receiving experience in a professional practice.
