The College of Computing & Informatics at Drexel University is pleased to announce that its Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) degree program was granted full accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

CAHIIM is an independent accrediting organization whose mission is to serve the public interest by establishing and enforcing quality Accreditation Standards for Health Informatics and Health Information Management (HIM) educational programs.

With this accreditation, Drexel’s MSHI program is ensured to meet the rigorous academic standards set forth by CAHIIM, and is the first CAHIIM-accredited health informatics program in the Greater Philadelphia area. Students who graduate from CCI’s CAHIIM-accredited program are eligible to sit for professional certification exams including Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) and Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) offered by AHIMA.

“With recognition from the top accrediting body in health informatics and information management education, our MS in Health Informatics program is recognized among the best programs in the nation,” said Professor and MSHI Program Director Christopher C. Yang, PhD. “Our interdisciplinary curriculum, led by a world-class faculty, is helping health and computing professionals to advance their knowledge in the health IT field and achieve their career goals.”
