Accreditation Adds Value
The Peirce College Health Information Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) and the Health Information Administration program is pending accreditation review. CAHIIM is an independent accrediting organization that establishes and enforces quality accreditation standards for Health Informatics and Health Information Management educational programs.
CAHIIM accreditation enables students enrolled in the HIT program to sit for the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) Exam. Credentialing denotes specialized competency which can mean fewer hours of on-the job-training. Recent feedback from the Health Programs Advisory Board indicates that certifications and credentials are highly valued in the workplace.
