Health Informatics, BA

Western Governors University

With a health information management degree from WGU, you’ll be a valuable asset in the high-demand field of healthcare information technology and management with the added credibility of the highly respected CompTIA Project+ certification—and eligibility to apply for the RHIA® credentialing exam.

Credentialed by AHIMA, Registered Health Information Administrators (RHIA) are the data-and-knowledge link between care providers and patients. Earning an RHIA credential and becoming a health information administrator is the next step for professionals with Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT®)—and often comes with significant salary bump. 

And because WGU’s online, competency-based, highly respected HIM bachelor’s degree is also accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM), it satisfies the eligibility requirement for aspiring RHIA applicants.
