Health IT Program Offers Emerging Opportunity for IT and Healthcare Workers
April 20, 2011 – As hospitals, physician offices and other health providers move to electronic health record systems, Health IT workers will be in great demand.
In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a shortfall of Health IT workers through 2015 and beyond.
To help fill this void, Collin College’s Continuing Education now offers a Health IT Certificate series, which provides customized training for current IT and healthcare professionals to gain the knowledge and skills to enter the field.
Students who complete coursework possess the skills to work in a variety of roles including sales, project planning, programming, implementation and training of workers to deploy electronic health systems.
This certificate also prepares students to take the Certified Health Informatics Systems Professional exam, which is offered by the American Society of Health Informatics Managers.
