EMR consulting and technology resource EMRapproved.com is partnering with healthcare IT industry leaders HITECH Answers and Hielix to present HIT University – a comprehensive practical education initiative designed to help IT firms gain a better understanding of healthcare technology and provide better services to medical offices with EMR-related needs.
The demand for technology in the healthcare industry has increased exponentially with the recent HITECH Act, enacted to accelerate EHR adoption by providing incentive payments to health care providers that implement an EHR system. Due to the rapid rise in demand, an education gap has become evident in the healthcare IT marketplace. Most small to medium-sized ambulatory practices require assistance to improve their technology, though very few IT groups are knowledgeable in this area nationwide.
“I believe the training provided to IT professionals through EMRapproved.com will be greatly appreciated by the healthcare community at large," says Wendy Whitmore, Managing Partner and CIO for EMRapproved.com Corp. "The tools and resources accessible via EMRapproved.com, HITECHAnswers.net and Hielix EHR Roadmap will help these consultants deliver a high level of assistance to physicians and clinics as they navigate the maze of information and technology solutions available to them. This program is the first of its kind in the industry!"
The HIT Certification program aims to introduce technology consultants and firms to the evolving topic of electronic health records while also offering a practical guide to healthcare technology. The real-world learning and tools provided through the EMRapproved HIT Certification program give new HIT professionals the knowledge and resources required to provide top-notch consultant-level service to the healthcare community.
The program provides training in the areas of basic EHR workflow, healthcare technology, the HIT marketplace and the HITECH Act. Graduates will receive additional benefits like professional industry guidance and service delivery samples, tools and products to help new or existing clients, direct referrals for local service contracts from EMRapproved.com and a free one-year inclusion in the EMRapproved Nationwide Certified Consultant Registry & Directory. Certified Healthcare IT Specialists will have a better platform on which to market their services in the multi-billion dollar healthcare industry as well as a range of exclusive benefits from EMRapproved.com.
