We are very happy to report that we are officially in Candidacy for accreditation with CAHIIM! I am busy working on the next step which is our self-assessment report. Following the self-assessment report, our final accreditation visit will be scheduled. This is what you will now see on our website and in publications about the HIM program:

The HIM Bachelor of Science program at Charter Oak State College is in Candidacy Status, pending accreditation review by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

Accreditation is very important because it ensures that we have a quality program that meets the needs of students and employers, and it allows you to sit for the RHIA exam. I will always keep you updated with any future accreditation news.

And the next big news (although this probably isn’t new to most of you)... there is a shortage of HIM/HIT Professionals! Need I say more? You will want to read this article!

If you are receiving this Weekly Wednesday email for the first time and would like to receive past editions, just let me know!

Have a great week everyone!
