TAYLORSVILLE — Salt Lake Community College will offer a new associate of applied science degree in health information technology.
The Utah State Board of Regents granted approval for the program, which will train students in medical records and managing patients’ health information to include medical history, symptoms, examination results, diagnostic tests, treatment methods and other health care provider services.
“Health information technology is one of the fastest-growing employment opportunities in the health care field, especially in Utah,” said Ruben Rocha, health information technology program director at SLCC. “The high demand is based on the transition next year to new codes that will add increased specificity to clinical diagnoses.
"The increased need for the degree is also based on different federal mandates requiring all health organizations to be compliant with several new regulations.”
