Health Information Management

The Douglas College Health Information Management program is a highly-specialized two-year diploma program designed to prepare you for a career working behind the scenes as a health information management professional.



Every hospital, government and health care provider has to be accountable. That's where the health information management professional comes in, keeping a record of every health condition and service performed in our health care system.



A complex, international coding system is used. The information is entered into a national database. Hospitals, governments and the Canadian Institute of Health Information use the database to compile reports as a basis for health care decisions on everything from how to manage waitlists for surgery to figuring out how healthy Canadians are as a whole.



If you are interested in health care and enjoy working with computers, numbers and details, Health Information Management may be the ideal career for you.
