Health Information Technology
Lamar Institute of Technology’s Health Information Technology, A.A.S. degree prepares students for employment in the healthcare industry, insurance and government agencies, and care facilities. Students can expect to learn roles such as collecting and analyzing data that doctors and nurses rely on and are essential to quality healthcare. Graduates of LIT’s Health Information Technology, A.A.S. program are equipped to serve as health information technicians and are trained to manage patient health records, coding diagnoses and procedures, preparing healthcare statistics, and administering computer information systems. The number of students accepted each fall is limited due to space in clinical settings. Applicants are chosen based on academic success and medical experience. Students are required to complete all of the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative, as well as Anatomy and Physiology with a “C” or above before being accepted into the program. For those who have not completed the prerequisite requirement, students may reapply the next year during normal admission times. Students pursuing an A.A.S in Health Information Technology complete an unpaid professional practice experience in a health care facility. While practicum courses are offered online, attendance at a health care facility must also be met. Health Information Technology, A.A.S. at LIT is accredited by the Commission for Health Informatics and Information Management. Once in the program, students take classes such as Medical Terminology, Health Care Statistics, and Legal and Ethical Aspects of Health Information.
