Start a unique and rewarding career in health information technology

  • Study close to home at our campus in Nutley
  • Train for the fast-growing electronic medical records management field
  • Increase your career opportunities with an associate degree

Healthcare providers maintain health records for every patient that they meet. These medical records include information provided by patients (such as their symptoms and medical histories), observations made by healthcare providers and any treatments provided. Health information technologists organize and evaluate these records to ensure they are complete and accurate. They also communicate with physicians and other healthcare professionals to clarify diagnoses or to obtain additional information regarding the patient. As a student in the health information technology (HIT) concentration at Eastwick College, you will train with up-to-date medical records technology used by many healthcare organizations, insurance companies, and government. By working in Eastwick’s specialized hands-on learning environment, you can develop the confidence to be prepared for today’s challenging workplace. The demand for employees trained in HIT has grown significantly as government and insurance agencies increasingly rely on electronic records databases to organize patient information and determine payment for treatments. While we strive to provide students with the best tools to prepare for their careers, we cannot and do not guarantee employment.
