HIT Workforce Training Program
The HIT Workforce Training Program is intensive, online, six-month non-degree education designed to provide a qualified pool of workers with both a medical and information technology body of knowledge to ensure the adoption of the electronic health records (EHRs), information exchange across health care providers and public health authorities, and the redesign of workflows within health care settings to gain the quality and efficiency benefits of EHRs, while maintaining privacy and security of medical information.
The Program will be flexibly implemented to provide each trainee with skills and competencies that he/she does not already possess. Focus will be on individuals who have either medical or information technology knowledge and education. Training will provide these individuals knowledge, skills, and aptitudes necessary to implement an electronic health records system.
