Anyone familiar with RHIT

For a while we had quite a few people looking to get into HIMSS. I noticed this certification the other day and can't help wondering if this is more of a legitimate certification than the CompTIA health care HIT.

Thoughts? I by no means want to get this, but figured I would post it for discussion. It seems that on LinkedIN several veteran HIMSS analyst have this certification.

Just wanted to uncover some of the knowledge I discovered.

    The one person that is RHIT at my facility is more of a medical record, health information services person. They do a lot of coding and auditing of patient charts for accuracy. That is all I really know of it and at other facilities it could be totally different.

    I can get some specific info for you tomorrow at work, N2IT. But, from what I have seen, most of our Medical Records staff has had this certification.
