Health Information Management (B.A.) at USC Upstate

The Bachelor of Arts in Information Management & Systems/Health Information Management (IMS/HIM) is the only degree program of its kind in South Carolina. We are working with Greenville Technical College, Trident Technical College, Midlands Technical College and Florence-Darlington Technical College to create this unique progression program. Students who have received an associate’s degree from an accredited health information management program and hold the RHIT certificate (or take and successfully pass the registry exam within six to 12 months of entrance into the program) may enroll in the accredited HIM Program.

Outcomes from the most recent program review include:

  • 100% of our grads are employed in the field and 100% sat for and passed the RHIA exam.
  • The student retention rate for this program during 2017 remained at 100%.
  • Students successfully completing this CAHIIM-accredited program are eligible to take the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) exam offered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
  • Each program completes a yearly Annual Program Assessment.
