Quincy, Illinois (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
HomeTown Health University, http://www.hthu.net, is proud to partner with i-Net and ICAHN to provide more than 30 online education courses targeting skills improvement and best practice education for non-clinical and financial departments at healthcare facilities across Illinois. Together, HTHU and i-Net will provide a variety of education courses ranging from revenue cycle education, customer service, compliance, computer skills, accounting and best practices for healthcare professionals.
“i-Net education activities offer health care providers opportunities to improve skills, enhance knowledge and increase professionalism. Our partnership with HomeTown Health University will mean more educational opportunities for the individuals and hospitals we serve,” said Kathy Fauble, i-Net Director.
This partnership offers i-Net members the opportunity to access online education courses that were not readily available before through specialized discounts for members. Likewise, non-members who are in the i-Net affiliation can also have access to courses outside the scope of i-Net’s traditionally clinical online education.
“We are very excited to have the chance to partner with i-Net and ICAHN,” said HTHU Director of Education Kristy Thomson. “i-Net has a well-established clinical training series for their hospitals and this opportunity to provide additional education for non-clinical staff is an exciting partnership given their proven dedication to hospital education, not only in Illinois, but across the midwest.”
