Train For EHR Enterprise is proud to announce that its Electronic Health Records Training Course will now be offered by Western Technical College of El Paso, TX.
Western Tech chose Train For EHR’s course because it fit with the school’s mission to prepare students for careers by combining traditional classroom instruction with hands-on experience.
“The main reason we chose the Train For EHR Electronic Health Records training course,” explains Petra York, Western Tech’s Medical/Clinical Assisting Program Director, “is because it offers a ‘live’ component that will give our students more realistic experience than they can get from simulations” offered in other EHR training courses.
Train For EHR offers its online EHR training course to career colleges, technical schools, community colleges and allied health training institutions. The course was designed to prepare students for the new Certified Electronic Health Record Specialist certification. It includes rich didactic content, a demonstration version of General electric’s Centricity EHR, and access to a fully functional, certified Electronic Health Record system – complete with detailed multimedia tutorials and clinical scenarios. Train For EHR also provides a host of support tools for instructors, including customized ‘Train the Trainer’ webinars. Both the didactic content and ‘live’ EHR are accessible from any computer with an internet connection.
The reason Western Tech chose the Train For EHR course points to the importance of maximizing the employability of students upon graduation. With EHR adoption by medical offices rapidly accelerating, it is more important than ever for students entering the field to demonstrate hands-on knowledge of EHR functionality, and an understanding of the new workflow necessary to achieve the greatest benefit from this technology. Train For EHR designed its course with this priority in mind.
