Important RHIT/RHIA Update

RHIT/RHIA Beta Exams Delayed to January 2, 2018 by AHIMA

Because of the weather-related emergency situations along the southern, western, and eastern coasts of the United States, AHIMA has made a one-time compassion-based decision to delay the beta period for the RHIT and RHIA exams originally scheduled to begin on October 2, 2017, to January 2, 2018. 

During the beta period, immediate exam scoring is not available. We know that many individuals signed up to take their exam prior to October 2 specifically to avoid the beta period, and many may now find themselves unable to prepare adequately for the exam because they have been affected by one of the recent weather-related emergencies.

The revised beta schedule is as follows. This schedule applies to anyone taking the RHIT or RHIA exam, regardless of whether you have been directly impacted by the current weather-related emergencies:

  • Anyone already scheduled with Pearson Vue to take the RHIT or RHIA exam on or before January 1, 2018, will take the current exam.
  • Anyone scheduled or planning to schedule with Pearson Vue to take the RHIT or RHIA exam on or after January 2, 2018, will take the new beta exam. Immediate scoring will not be available for the beta exam. As of January 2, 2018, ONLY the beta exam will be available until further notice.

Additional Resources

The library system has eBooks via EBSCO to support those taking the RHITRHIA or CCA exams. Direct links are below:

Our Library and Learning Center group has put together two short presentations on how to prepare for tests during the regular part of the quarter and the week of the exam.

In addition to the videos, Rasmussen's blog has an article titled "How To Beat College Exam Stress" that might prove helpful.

1. Quizlet has flashcards for the RHIT exam at http://quizlet.com/subject/rhit-exam/

2. In addition to eMaterials from the library, AHIMA puts out two types of online guides for their certification exams: Exam Resources and  Candidate Guide. These are located on the AHIMA homepage, under the Certification tab.
 

3. During the HIT practicum course, students will receive a Professional Review Guide. That guide contains a CD with:

  • three (3) sample RHIT exams
  • flash cards
  • and a learning mode to prepare you for the test.


4. Students may also want to access the Pearson-Vue Testing Center (online) to take their practice exams (link is on the lower right). The practice exams here cost money, but they will allow you to get a feel for how the software functions prior to actually taking the test.

5.  HITNOTS has dozens of free multiple choice review quizzes on HIT topics.

6.  ICD-10 Interactive Self-Learning Tool (World Health Organization)  This tool can be helpful to students/graduates  who have taken ICD9 and want to train independently on ICD 10 or  for students/graduates who have taken ICD10 and want to review again.
