The Canadian College of Health Information Management (College) would like to announce the successful accreditation of the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS)’s Master of Health Administration-Health Informatics and Information Management (MHA-HIIM).
This graduate degree is offered online, and HIIM professionals engaged in health administration roles and activities are collaborative decision-makers. They apply a combination of technical, analytical, and management and leadership skills to effectively influence planning and decision-making within a team of people, processes, technology, and data.
In June 2007, JSGS was established as a joint collaboration between the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, after extensive consultation with senior leaders in government, industry and academia. Since then, the JSGS has swiftly become one of Canada’s leading policy schools for educating graduate students and public servants interested in and devoted to advancing public value.
The Canadian College of Health Information Management sets the accreditation standards for educational institutions offering health information programs in Canada. Accreditation demonstrates to the public that a program aligns with industry standards, as identified through the College’s needs assessment and consultation with industry. It is a voluntary, self-regulatory process to recognize those that meet or exceed the standards set for health information education. The purpose of accrediting programs is to ensure continuous quality improvement of the educational content to support the evolving health information industry.
Graduates of this program will be eligible to write the Certified in Health Information Management (CHIM) national certification examination (NCE).
