Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

In 2007, there were about two hundred forty five CAHIIM accredited programs in Health Informatics and Information Management Education, representing approximately ten to twelve thousand students. There are approximately ninety-five career colleges that offer HIT programs as well. We estimate close to an additional four thousand students in unaccredited programs. In addition, there are thousands of students enrolled in allied health programs who take courses in HIT. This book took a few selling cycles to pick up steam, but it is now selling over five thousand units a year with little attrition in the past two years. We have added additional sales units to our projections, as we have invested in new technology with the Learning Lab and our community site, which should impact sales positively (approximately a twenty five percent increase in the first full year of sales over historic high). We receive frequent e-mails and calls, probably on a weekly basis, asking for the time-table on this revision, so it is urgent that this plan get executed.
