Lorman Education Services offers multiple convenient ways to earn credits toward RHIT recertification.
Health information technicians across the country know how valuable AHIMA certification programs can be when it comes to advancing their career. Professionals who obtain the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) certification will be better positioned to not only do their job on a day-to-day basis, but also to pursue potentially lucrative and rewarding new opportunities.
What Is RHIT Certification?
The RHIT program focuses on the following skills:
- Verifying the completeness, accuracy and proper entry of medical records
- Using computer software to analyze patient data, with the aim of improving care or controlling costs
- Compiling, coding and maintaining patient records for reimbursement or research purposes
RHIT certification requires completion of a multiple choice exam. The certification is intended as a pathway to management opportunities and is open to any health information professional with an Associate's degree or higher from a recognized institution.
Keeping Your Certification Current
Once you've passed the initial RHIT exam, you are required to complete 20 approved continuing education credits every two-year recertification period. Of these, a minimum of 80% must be in a topic related to health informatics and information management, such as management, privacy, clinical foundations and related issues.
