Shrewsbury, MA / Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
TRS Institute, the nation’s leader in healthcare documentation services and training, proudly announces a new name and new website.
TRS Institute will now operate as the training and workforce development arm of the American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group (AHDPG). Company CEO, Peter Reilly says, "the new name was developed to reflect and communicate our belief that it is the people; the clinicians, nurses, medical language specialists, medical billers and coders and medical scribes who are the foundation of our healthcare system today. This is in stark contrast to the focus currently being placed by healthcare reform’s obsession with technology. Technology is an enabler; without 'competently' trained professionals in the right place, doing the right job, at the right time it does not matter how many billions of dollars we spend to make things better. It just will not work. It still comes down to people.”
According to industry experts, there is a 40-50% shortage of health information workers; and the deficit is expected to grow by an additional 20% over the next five years. By bringing our innovative training and workforce development team together with our quality outsourcing services team, AHDPG enables hospitals, physicians, community colleges and industry service providers an economical means to train the additional staff they need to fill these roles. Reilly, says this also makes us the only online training and workforce development company where our students can come learn from us and have an opportunity to work for us. And where some training companies are changing their focus from the “people” to the “technology,” we remain steadfast in our belief and focus on developing “competently” trained individuals the healthcare industry desperately needs.
By some estimates, the U.S. Government is pushing to train 10,500 health IT works by 2012 with a call for an additional 6,000 new workers annually thereafter. With unemployment in the U.S. running greater than 9.0%, the workforce development programs offered by AHDPG provide a unique opportunity for individuals looking for the security and stability offered by a career in allied health.
