Carson High launches HIM course
October 12, 2017
Carson High School Career & Technical Education has added Health Information Management, to its Health Science and Public Safety Career Cluster for the 2017-2018 school year.
The new class teaches students how to handle and use patient health records and medical information electronically. HIM will be integrated into the Pharmacy Practice, Sports Medicine and EMT curriculums already being taught at the school.
The Carson City School District has partnered with Physician Select Management, a provider of e-Clinical Works, and a fully integrated medical records program used by 70,000 physicians nationally. This partnership will work to establish program standards, which are recognized and valued by local healthcare employers like Renown and Carson Medical Group. Through the school's College and Career Readiness Center, students in HIM will have opportunities for work-based learning experiences and one-on-one career guidance.
