Students in the Health Information Technology at Ivy Tech get instruction using the American Health Information Management Association Virtual Lab which provides students with hands-on learning using the most current technology in healthcare facilities today.  Students are also provided the opportunity to extern in our community healthcare facilities that could lead to a permanent position after graduation.  Since our students have been exposed to so many hands-on learning opportunities, our students pass the Registered Health Information Technician certification at rates well above the national average.
