Ferris State University offers an opportunity for graduates of a Commission on the Accreditation of Health Information and Informatics Management (CAHIIM) accredited Health Information Technology program to complete the Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Information Management. Designed with the working RHIT in mind, the professional courses (HCSA and MRIS) are offered online.
Unless the graduate has had a course in ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding from an accredited institution, the student will need to successfully complete this course prior to graduation from the Health Information Management program. Because this class is not offered in an online format at Ferris, the student could take an equivalent course through an accredited Health Information program.
Some general education courses are not offered online at Ferris. Students would need to take the following courses at a Ferris campus or their equivalents at another college/university.
These classes include:
Upon successful completion of the Health Information Management program, the graduate will be eligible to take the registration exam (RHIA).
