About the Program 

Medaille's online health information management degree (HIM) prepares students to collect, maintain, interpret, analyze and protect data that is essential for providing quality, effective and efficient patient care.

What's more, students are qualified to sit for the RHIA exam upon graduating from our nationally accredited (CAHIIM) Bachelor of Professional Studies in Health Information Management program.
