Assistant Professor Jamie Loggains teaches in Health Programs at Peirce College. Specifically, she teaches Basic and Advanced CPT Coding, Medical Terminology, Reimbursement Methodologies and Introduction to Health Information Management.

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) and her M.S. in Health Informatics from the University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, Illinois).

Professor Loggains' first love is 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 Professor Loggains to bring working knowledge into the classroom, which helps to make the material relatable to what students are learning.

If you ask Professor 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, Professor Loggains enjoys watching Arkansas Razorbacks football, working in her garden and spending time with family.

    The Peirce College Associate in Science in Health Information Technology (HIT) degree program is taught by an experienced faculty with a background working in healthcare professions. Our HIT professors prepare students for employment in hospitals, office-based physician practices, nursing homes, home health agencies, mental health facilities, public health agencies and other organizations that use patient data or health information such as law and insurance firms and pharmaceutical companies.

    The faculty's goal with the Health Information Technology degree program is to show their students how to apply sound theories and principles of health information technology based upon the 2012 American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) curriculum competencies and the accreditation requirements of the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

    In your introductory-level courses, the faculty will teach you about medical terminology with an emphasis on analysis of components, meaning, spelling and pronunciation and then give you lessons on the basics of health information management. This includes teachings on the history of healthcare, organization of healthcare delivery in the United States, medical record types and content and preparation for career opportunities.

    As you move through the associate degree program, the faculty will also offer lessons on statistical applications in healthcare, legal issues relating to the field, healthcare reimbursement, ICD-10 medical coding (including advanced coding), outpatient coding, computer information systems and the managing quality and improving performance. The faculty will guide you through coverage of the theory and practice of performance and quality improvement processes in healthcare organizations, further preparing you to work in an HIT capacity.
