Q. How do I find information related to Health Information Technology (HIT)?


There are some great resources in the library system. The resources below will help you find great information on HIT resources:

  • Credo Reference Books [electronic books you can access 24/7 from anywhere!]
    • For online or e-books, including e-versions of medical dictionaries!
  • Databases (for electronic articles from magazines, professional journals, and more)
    • Associates Program Plus, Business Source Complete, CINAHL Plus, and Health Source
      • Search the four databases above at the same time (click here to learn how) to find health information technology and management articles. Topics for the HIT professional include health care management, information systems, electronic health records, and privacy issues.
    • Health Sciences and Nursing via ProQuest
      • Includes articles related to all areas of the health sciences and nursing fields, including health information technology and coding. Of special note, this database includes full-text access to Journal of AHIMA and AHIMA Advantage
    • AHIMA Body of Knowledge
      • Search for practice briefs, position statements, job descriptions, government documents, articles from the Journal of AHIMA and more. Full text of some items will be available online. Students in the HIT program will receive a student membership to AHIMA that will allow them to get into articles that are not available to all. If you are not a HIT student or have not yet received your student membership, ask your librarian to get the item for you via interlibrary loan!! Interlibrary loan how-to instructions are here! A guide to using Body of Knowledge is attached below.
