Health Information Technology Training at JCC in March

Jefferson Community College (JCC) in collaboration with the Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization (FDRHPO) will again offer health information technology (HIT) pre-certification training for individuals with experience in healthcare or information technology. The HIT program can be completed in 18-weeks and will start March 4, 2016 and wrap up by July 8, 2016. Classes will take place at JCC on Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Applications, due by February 19, are available online.    

The HIT program consists of hands-on training, classroom lecture and a built in apprenticeship. Students will have the opportunity to sit for two Health IT certification exams designated for the role of workflow analysis and redesign specialist, and practitioner consultant.

HIT technicians create, install and maintain a patient’s electronic health record (EHR). As an increasing number of physician practices and hospitals move toward the EHR system, the demand for certified HIT professionals will continue to grow. Healthcare and information technology professionals won’t want to miss this opportunity for career growth!

Tuition costs $500. Veterans will receive a reduced rate of $250. Students who successfully complete the training may be eligible for a $250 reimbursement.
