HealthIT Program Overview
By 2015 everyone will be required to have Electronic Health Records (EHR). The work required to reach this goal is expected to create a high demand in several types of Health Information Technology (IT) professions.
National Park Community College has implemented a non-degree educational program designed to provide a pool of qualified workers with both medical and information technology knowledge. The electronic health record project will provide quality and efficiency, while maintaining privacy and security of medical information.
