FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: emids Offers Certification Course for HIT Professionals Nashville, Tenn. (November 3, 2015)—emids, a provider of information technology services to the healthcare industry, announced today that healthcare IT professionals can now complete its online certification programs, aspire HIT and aspire Provider.
The programs were developed by a roster of both internal and external HIT subject matter experts to help emids employees stay abreast of the latest trends, capabilities and technologies in healthcare. They have been used extensively to train thousands of healthcare IT professionals, which means they have been vetted against real-world challenges.
“The training courses have been a core part of emids’ ability to maintain healthcare expertise in an environment experiencing critical shortages in talent pools during a time of unprecedented need for HIT services. We have presented the tool as a differentiator for emids services, and time and again our clients have requested access to use it within their own organizations,” says Michael Hollis, emids SVP of Business Development.
By offering the training courses to the public, emids hopes its clients, the Nashville tech community and the healthcare industry as a whole can benefit from its 12 years of experience in the HIT space and become better educated and prepared to support HIT requirements to come, such as ICD-10, meaningful use mandates, health insurance exchanges, market disruption and more.
Technology is increasingly becoming the means to overcome these challenges. Unfortunately, healthcare IT staffing shortages are making it difficult for companies to meet needs. To show support and help the tech industry here in Nashville, emids is donating licenses to the Nashville Technology Counsel and the TNHIMSS association.
“Promoting technology training and educational opportunities is part of our core mission at the NTC,” says Bryan Huddleston, President and CEO, Nashville Technology Council. “These specialized courses will result in more HIT trained professionals in the Nashville area and we’re very excited to make it available to our members.”
Businesses can use the training to attract and retain superior talent, and keep company members apprised of industry changes with aspire’s annual content updates. The course content also supports existing training in the healthcare IT space. “TNHIMSS provides statewide education and professional development programs for the advancement of healthcare information technology. To accelerate education in our workforce is paramount for our members to reach their goals.” says Connie McGee, President, Tennessee HIMSS Chapter. “We will leverage Aspire licenses to complement our 14 Week Accelerator Course with Belmont University.”
Open to individuals and businesses, the program covers topics ranging from HIT roles, revenue cycle management, healthcare data standards and trends, hospital information systems, patient care management, clinical support systems, practice management systems and more.
