However, I always want to try to improve them.
I feel I have learned how to word the things I want to say in the
proper way to get my point across effectively.
The communication was awesome! I've gotten replies on every
single one of my emails in 12 hrs or less, depending on if the
instructor was at school or not. The instructors are very
approachable and I felt very comfortable with them.

I think no matter how the courses are configured, either all online or
blended, someone will have a problem with it, but I think the things I
would change are more class time for the harder classes (coding,
healthcare stats & research) and make some of the other classes
that are easier with no class time (HIM organizational resources).
That's just my opinion!
Different clinical sites
I was able to see what went on behind the scenes of the medical
process.
Not sure if I would change anything about this program. I feel they
covered everything to completely prepare us for the medical
workforce.

Apply mathematical concepts.

I experienced some accomplishments
My favorite thing about the course was definitely that most of the
course can be taken online. Also, the instructor/student
communication was awesome!
I feel this program teaches students a lot about the rules and
regulations of the medical field, and gives them many opportunities to
be leaders within the medical field. Even if you don't want to be a
leader, there are also many different types of behind the scenes jobs
that need to be done as well.

Use effective communication skills.

The math was not really that difficult, so I guess I achieved this
outcome.
Yes for budgeting
I hate math, but we got through all math concepts fairly well. I
thought all the math we did was 100% relevant and was a great
learning opportunity.
Yes, I feel I have learned how to use mathematical skills in
documents to save time and create effective/thorough
documents/information to present to others.

This program places a large amount of value on the concepts of self
values, work ethics, and being able to work with others in a deverse
population. This is very important to know and understand when
working with the public.
Outcome was great in this area.
No mention about valuing myself was ever made in any course.

0
Yes

Make decisions that incorporate the
importance of sustainability

I do always want to improve this aspect.
Thinking critically was essential in all classes in this program and I
feel that I am better prepared for future employment by improving
these skills from this program.
This program gave me the skills to look at a situation and make a
decision within a reasonable amount of time, and to be as accurate
as possible. Look at the whole picture before making any kind of
decisions.
Many assignments you had to really think to find the solution.

0
Yes

Use technology effectively.

Great outcome.
I feel they have covered this area well to give us a complete scope of
how theories came into play from the past to the future, and how they
still apply in everyday situations.
I do not think I had any exposure to social or natural science theories.

I would like to have had a little more exposure to HIT software
packages.
Technology use was one of the most important thing in this class and
I feel with out the proper technological knowledge, there would be no
way of completing this program. My technology skill have come a
long way since the beginning of this course.
My technology skills have increased greatly since I have enrolled in
this program. Its amazing what I can do that I didn't know I could!

Great outcome.
with the assignments you had to think .
Being able to make decisions that incorporate the importance of
sustainability is very important in the Health Information Technology
field.
The word sustainability never came up in any class.

This was essential.

Great.

applications.
I have learned a lot about how to manage and maintain electronic
applications to manage health information.

Aggregate Assessment of Achievement

This program teaches a lot about model professional behaviors and
ethics, which I feel is very important in any field.
Great.
However, this is a subjective issue because everyone can have a bad
day and not be 100% professional.

Yes

Apply organizational management techniques

The clinical is where I learned about the coding process because I
was actually doing the process in a real life situation. the learning I
had in class helped me to be able to know what to do.
I thought this was the hardest area that I improved the most in this
program because of the complexity of what needed to be learned.
The hardest courses are the most educational!
I think if I had to do this I could, but it definately isn't what I love. Did
they teach it well? Yes, definately.
I would have liked more exposure to reimbursement systems.

0
Yes

Maintain electronic applications to manage
health information

I love working with health data and this program really gives me the
opportunity to do what I love. I feel that I can manage health data
with accuracy.
Some assignments were really detailed and helpful.

Great.
Yes, I feel I can apply organizational management techniques in a

A lot of the concepts taught in class will NOT apply to the real world.
