Welcome to the Health Information Management Programs webpage. I am Linda Galocy, MS, RHIA, Director of the Health Information Management programs at IU Northwest. Our AS program has been a very long-standing and highly regarded program for over 40 years. Our department expanded several years ago to include a BS in Health Information Administration program. You will find detailed information on our Associate and Baccalaureate degrees in HIM as you browse through our website. Our curriculum is constantly being reviewed and updated to ensure currency with accreditation requirements, as well as market demands. We work closely with our major employers in Northwest Indiana to ensure our students are receiving the quality education that allows for an easy transfer of skills to the employment market.
I encourage you to investigate this career in the business side of health care. There are many opportunities for careers in informatics and data analysis, information technology, clinical documentation improvement, coding, classification and reimbursement, and healthcare law.
Health Information, as a profession, offers excellent job opportunities, as well as the ability for a professional to grow in their career. Our programs highlight our achievements on their respective home pages. I am proud of our excellent faculty, students, and graduates of our programs.
