HRMS is working with a number of leading educators on a national basis to enhance workforce training, education and job placement. The proposed scope of work can be summarized as follows:
The HIT Plus Training Program
Enhance the existing national ONC HIT curriculum and methods of delivery to increase student completion rates; prepare students for employment in occupations supporting the Electronic Health Records industry; develop Health IT job readiness and job search training to increase employment outcomes; enhance employer relationships to provide customized, incumbent job training programs and internships; incorporate entrepreneurial training to provide an opportunity for completers to start their own HIT consulting firm; integrate existing DOL career guidance resources, models and networks to leverage previous government investment; establish programs that better match certification outcomes.
Here are the colleges that have joined to pursue this endeavor:
PITT Community College
HINDS Community College
Tidewater Community College
Houston Community College
Indian River State College
Santa Fe College
Central Piedmont Community College
Atlanta Technical College
George Tech University
Florence-Darlington Technical College
NACEE, AHIMA and HIMSS have also expressed an interest in the partnership.
I’ll keep you posted as we continue to work toward solving the Health IT labor market challenges.
