I am trying to automate a process for documentation using python or possibly some other programming language. I need to get the item name, part number, designer and creation date from the file without opening it in Inventor. Is there a way to do this?

Welcome to the forum.
If you RC on the file in windows explorer and select "Properties, then the "iproperties" tab and select "iproperties" yet again, it will give you the info I believe you are looking for.
If this solved your issue please mark this posting "Accept as Solution".
Or if you like something that was said and it was helpful, Kudos are appreciated. Thanks!!!!
Welcome to the forums!
Cadmanto's suggestion will work if you just need it as a human, if you need it in your program you can use the "Inventor Apprentice" application to open, read, and (IIRC) modify Inventor files without the actual Inventor application. There should be information available in the Inventor programming help.
Also, as an FYI, programming type questions will get the most helpful responses when posted in the Inventor Customization forum.
I hope this helps!
