It’s an Exciting Time to Enter the Field of Health Information Technology

Have an interest in health care, administration, and computers? Consider the fast-growing field of Health Information Technology (HIT). (1)  Health Care Technicians are a critical part of the healthcare system. They typically work in physician offices, hospitals, insurance companies, and other health care related organizations. Their main task is to organize and manage data to assure its quality, accessibility, and security. 

Health Information Technology is vital to both patients and health care providers. It has drastically transformed our nation’s health care, helping to improve the way we maintain patient medical histories, research, track and access health care information, while revolutionizing the way we handle and manage health care for ourselves and our families.

Given mandates from the government to change the way data is coded, stored, and retrieved, significant changes are taking place in the market for Health Information Technicians. TCI's Health Information Technology instructors are excited to be part of this fast-changing field and regularly seek input from industry in order to update the courses and program, and insure students are well prepared to take advantage of the expanding market.
