Health Information Technology Certification in Illinois - IL

RHIT certification in Illinois is issued through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), an organization of health information management professionals founded in 1928. While credentialing through AHIMA isn't required by state law in order to pursue a career as a health information technician, it's considered by many employers to be the norm for HIT professionals and is certain to broaden any student's career opportunities. Degree programs that are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) equip students with the knowledge necessary to begin a successful HIT career, and prepare them for the AHIMA exam.

In Illinois some fourteen universities offer CAHIIM accredited HIT associates' degree programs. While many students still complete their education traditionally through on-campus class offerings, distance-learning options are gaining popularity in Illinois and across the nation. Distance education makes degree programs from across the country available to students, and offers increased flexibility which empowers aspiring students to pursue their goals at their own pace. The U.S. Department of Education reported recently that 66% of the colleges and universities in America offer either classes or on entire degree programs on-line and through other distance education methods.
