The universities in Australia that offer health information management degree programs are very large, publically funded institutions. Their operations are governed by a raft of legislative and other rules and guidelines. Universities are also immersed in critically important curriculum, pedagogical, and other academic requirements. Furthermore, there are crucial links between universities and the peak professional body, the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA), with regard to profession-entry competency standards and external course accreditation requirements. In this article, we introduce some key aspects of these course delivery frameworks and explain their influences on health information management education.
