Napa, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Boston Reed, a division of Ascend Learning, today announced the availability of its Electronic Health Records System Technologist Program, an online offering specifically designed to help physician offices, healthcare facilities and other clients meet federal mandates for an electronic medical records (EMR) environment.
The Electronic Health Records System Technologist program delivers an effective blend of online instruction and instructor-led webinars to prepare participants to choose, implement and maintain electronic health record systems in a clinical office environment. It also prepares candidates to sit for a certification exam in the field.
Eighteen weeks in length, the program offers participants real-life training at a pace which can save them up to a year-and-a-half in training over other programs. It is ideal for clinics, physician offices and other facilities wanting to provide their employees the latest and most-effective training at a speed that enables them to quickly work toward a successful EMR environment. Individuals just beginning a healthcare information systems career benefit by entering the workforce more quickly, and with strong earning potential.
“We are always looking to ensure our programs and courses are meeting real-world needs,” said Dana Bernard, president of Boston Reed. “We’re already seeing very high demand for this health information offering, which indicates that both individuals and organizations will find it valuable in this changing healthcare technology environment.”
Vicki Good, principal, Fairfield Suisun Adult School, said, “Because of our collaboration with Boston Reed, we have been able to offer quality medical training programs to the community at a cost far below that of private vocational schools. Everyone wins when you collaborate with Boston Reed– students, employers and adult schools.”
