The Health Information Management Computer Lab is located in Wharton Hall, Room 504. The computers are equipped with Microsoft Office, as well as Microsoft Visio and Microsoft Project. The lab is open daily (hours posted on door) and available to all HIM majors.
The HIM program also subscribes to the American Health Information Management Association’s (AHIMA) Virtual Lab (VLab). The VLab is an Internet-based, practical, participative, HIM and health information technology (HIT) work environment. Students can access and experience state-of-the-art software like the master patient index (MPI), EHR (Cerner/Athens), encoders, electronic document management systems (EDMS), and other applications they'll regularly use in the working world. Lessons and activities designed specifically for the lab applications allow students to test their skills and decision-making ability without jeopardizing the privacy, security, or integrity of real medical records.
