Learn More About JCC Health Information Technology Certificate Training Program on October 23

Beginning in January 2013, Jefferson Community College (JCC) in partnership with the Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization, will offer a health information technology (HIT) certificate training program of interest to professionals in the healthcare and information technology fields. JCC will hold a mandatory information session about  HIT certificate training on Tuesday, October 23 at 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Jules Center (Building 6), Room 6-002.

Health information technology makes it possible for health care providers to better manage patient care through secure use of electronically shared health information in place of paper medical records. As an increasing amount of physician practices and hospitals move toward the electronic health records (EHR) system, a growing amount of qualified HIT professionals are needed to assist hospitals and physicians.

JCC’s HIT certificate training is a six month program based on a national curriculum model developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.  Students will gain a working knowledge of health information management in an electronic environment and complete two of three HIT certification exams designated for the role of implementation support specialist, technical/software support staff or implementation manager. A third exam can be administered upon request for an additional fee.   

To learn more about JCC’s HIT certificate training program, attend one of the information sessions on Tuesday, October 23 or call the JCC Continuing Education Division at 315-786-6591.
