HIM 451 - Professional Practice Experience 2 (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: HIM 300 , HIM 360 , HIM 370  
This second professional practice experience (PPE) takes place in a health information management department of an acute healthcare facility. Students are supervised by a Registered Health Information Administrator, Registered Health Information Technician, or other qualified personnel assigned by the healthcare facility, and are provided with practical experiences that ground the theories acquired in prior coursework. The PPE focuses on departmental functions, quality assessment and performance improvement, computerized information systems, organizational resources and management, billing and reimbursement, document imaging, and the electronic health record. Students also rotate to non-acute sites such as ambulatory clinics, skilled nursing facilities and long-term facilities, and perform the functions outlined in the PPE student handbook.
