Centura College’s Richmond and Newport News campuses upgraded their curriculum by introducing Health Information Technology to their list of diploma programs offered. Students will train to work in the integrated industries of health care and information technology, through examination of health data and development of code for billing. Students can enroll now.
The Health Information Technology Diploma program is designed to ready students for the analysis of health data and transcription of diagnostic and procedural terms and services into a coded form for analysis and billing. Courses, such as Medical Terminology and Anatomy and Physiology, develop students for engagement within the health care field, while classes like CPT Coding and Computer Software Application in Healthcare develop students’ information technology skills. The program prepares students for entry-level positions within the health care field and is designed to take as little as 8 months to complete. Upon graduation, students will have acquired the knowledge and eligibility to take the Certified Coding Associate exam through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
