The American Health Information Management Association  offers credentialing as a Registered Health Informa­tion Technicians (RHIT). To obtain the RHIT credential, an in­dividual must graduate from a 2-year associate degree program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health In­formatics and Information Management Education  and pass an AHIMA-administered written examination. There are more than 200 CAHIIM-accredited health in­formation technology colleges and universities programs.

Typical coursework in health information technology includes medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, health data requirements and standards, clinical classification and coding systems, data analysis, health care reimbursement methods, database security and management, and quality improvement methods. Appli­cants can improve their chances of admission into a postsec­ondary program by taking biology, math, chemistry, health, and computer science courses in high school.

A number of organizations offer credentials typi­cally based on passing a credentialing exam. Most credentialing programs require regular recertification and continuing educa­tion to maintain the credential. Many coding credentials require an amount of time in coding experience in the work setting.

The American Academy of Professional Coders offers coding credentials. The Board of Medical Specialty Coding  and Professional Association of Health care Coding Specialists  both offer credentialing in special­ty coding. The National Cancer Registrars Association  offers a credential as a Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR).
