Please join us in welcoming our new Academic Director for the Health Information Management program, Ellen Shakespeare. Ellen joined CUNY School of Professional Studies in August from her last position as a faculty member and the program coordinator for the health information technology programs at Raritan Valley Community College.

Prior to her position at RVCC, she was a health information management department director and consultant at hospitals in Florida, New York, and New Jersey. Ms. Shakespeare recently achieved Fellowship with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), an honor only bestowed on 116 fellows out of over 60,000 members.

Ellen also serves as a panel reviewer for CAHIIM (Commission on Accreditation of Health Informatics and Information Management), as past president of the New Jersey Health Information Management Association, and is a member of AHIMA’s Council for Excellence in Education and Health Information Exchange Practice Council.

She received her MBA with a concentration in health administration from the University of Miami, and a B.S. in health information management from the University of Central Florida.

The CUNY SPS Online B.S. in Health Information Management prepares students for careers in this dynamic and rapidly expanding field. Students learn to develop, implement, and manage health information and data systems for quality care, reimbursement, research, planning, and evaluation.
