Resources & Facilities
The Health Information Management Program has recently added access to the Virtual Lab offered through AHIMA. Faculty and students will have virtual access to a full array of health information management technologies, including but not limited to a Master Patient Index (MPI), an encoder, an abstracting system, an electronic document management system (EDMS), Deficiency analysis, chart tracking, and registration/ADT system.
It is important that students receive technology training and the Virtual Lab will allow students to work with the software they will encounter in the workplace and that simulates real world application of those technologies.
Lab exercises are incorporated into specific courses and will emphasize the acquisition of skills related to the use of electronic tools to solve problems and make decisions.
