Extremely positive. Currently, labor statistics indicate there simply are not enough qualified professionals to keep up with the national demand for health information managers; this situation is expected to continue for quite some time. Due to the demands of the labor market and to St. Scholastica’s excellent reputation within this field, graduates of the health information management program boast a placement rate of nearly 100 percent within six months of graduation.
100 percent of employers indicate that the quality of program graduates have met their expectations. St. Scholastica HIM students have earned competitive scholarships from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Minnesota Chapter.
