|Health care as we know it is changing quickly, partly due to a combination of legislation and technological advancements. By the year 2015, all health care providers will be required to implement electronic health records (EHR) as mandated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. You could be a part of the workforce that is currently training to meet the increased demand for health IT professionals.
If you're already a health care professional or if you're in the field of information technology, consider enrolling in the HITECH Workforce Training Program. You could play an important role in the adoption of EHRs, exchange of health information among health care providers, and the redesign of workflows within health care settings. All programs are fully online, and take six months or less to complete.
