Overview

Medical notes, insurance information and billing details. Our healthcare system depends on all types of data. When you’re in the business of patient care, immediate access to accurate facts is a life-and-death proposition. Along with mandated Affordable Care Act reporting, data-driven healthcare requires more professionals who understand the systems and regulations behind the care. 

With a B.S. Health Information Management degree from Franklin University, you’ll be well prepared to help develop critical, potentially life-saving, policies and processes.
