Hi Carol, these are credentials that are offered by AHIMA. RHIT is Registered Health Information Technologist and you can register for this exam with an associate degree in HIT/HIM and the RHIA is Registered Health Information Administrator and for this exam you need at least a Bachelors degree to sit for exam. It appears that you need your RHIT before you can get a RHIA I am told by my fellow Coders. You can also get your Coding certifications from AHIMA also. Avail are CCS (Certified Coding Specialist) which is in-patient coding or CCS-P (Certified Coding Specialist- Physician based. ) I personally hold a CPC from AAPC and a CCS and CCS-P from AHIMA. I find BOTH organizations to be satisfactory! Good Luck!
