Health information management (HIM) is the practice of acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care.


Health information management professionals work in a variety of different settings and have various job titles. They often serve in bridge roles, connecting clinical, operational, and administrative functions. These professionals affect the quality of patient information and patient care at every touch point in the healthcare delivery cycle. Having skilled HIM professionals on staff ensures an organization has the right information on hand when and where it is needed while maintaining the highest standards of data integrity, confidentiality, and security.

Graduates of the SUNY Polytechnic Institute health information management program and students in their last semester are eligible to sit for the registered health information administrator (RHIA) examination of the American Health Information Management Association.


The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).
