The Learning Outcomes in Health Information Management (LOHIM) document provides the curriculum content for accredited Health Information Management (HIM) programs within Canada. This document is used for program development, program review, and for the creation of the National Certification Examination (NCE). The skills listed can be developed at any level for continuing education, graduate program development, or increasing core competencies in health information management. This document may be used as a comparison between HIM curriculum content and health informatics curriculum content. Such a comparison would show the similarities in specific content areas as well as the differences in application. Prospective HIM students can review the learning outcomes to familiarize themselves with what the program will offer. The public can use this document to educate themselves about the role HIM professionals have in regard to their personal health information and the safekeeping thereof.
