Health information learning options on the RISE

Positions in healthcare outside of patient care roles are in high demand, and to help meet our community’s need, UW-Green Bay offers a bachelor’s degree in Health Information Management & Technology (HIMT). It is a fully online program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM).

Heidi Neverman is an assistant teaching professor at UW-Green Bay.

The program is led by experienced faculty from across the UW System. Heidi Neverman , MSN, assistant teaching professor at UW-Green Bay, recently passed the Certified Health Data Analyst exam from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). This credential affirms her expertise in health data management and analysis.

HIMT Degree: The HIMT program focuses on developing graduates’ skills to navigate and adapt to changing regulations, technologies and governance   surrounding patient information. This expertise is essential in maintaining the quality of health care by ensuring that patient information is accurate, accessible and secure.

Certificate Option: UW-Green Bay also offers an online Health Information Management (HIM) certificate for students with a prior bachelor’s degree. This is a 24-credit fully online asynchronous curriculum comprised of existing HIMT courses.

Mentor program: HIMT graduates or professionals working in the HIMT field are needed for a new mentoring project at UW-Green Bay.

Misty Neal , MBA, RHIA, HIMT Program Director and HIMT faculty member, is leading the project and is looking to pair HIMT students with mentors to meet virtually (or in-person if in the same city). The mentor program is aimed at first generation students and half of the HIMT students are in this demographic.

The Mentoring Project was started 2021-22 with business students and later added education, human biology and public and environmental affairs majors. The focus is to connect students with mentors in their discipline in meaningful ways. Contact: Misty Neal,
