Once established, depending on focus of the programs, health information technology, health informatics and nursing informatics programs may consider getting accredited by the accrediting agency in the field, such as ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology), CAHIIM (Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management), and CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education).
Program accreditation by CAHIIM is necessary for a graduate to be eligible to sit for the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) certification exam, a highly respected credential in the healthcare industry that if earned, can position the graduate as a leader in the health information community.
CAHIIM promotes, evaluates and improves the quality of undergraduate and graduate health informatics and information management education in the United States and internationally through a rigorous, voluntary review process.
