The Midwest HIT Consortium is a collaboration of 17 of the largest and most innovative community colleges in the Midwest. Targeted to current health care and IT professionals who want to advance their skills, as well as students who are just starting out, the consortium's non-degree programs are designed to be completed in six months or less. Combined online and campus-based learning focuses on industry-specific technical knowledge as well as professionalism, customer service and leadership skills that support success in the health care environment. Graduates from the program receive non-degree certificates verifying that they have completed the necessary training.
Students, and ultimately their current or future employers, will benefit from the Midwest HIT Consortium's collaborative approach, access to nationally developed curriculum, experienced instructors and flexibility to accommodate customized training.
Developed with employer needs in mind, and with the assistance of industry advisory committees, the program focuses on job-specific training in six workforce roles to support electronic health records implementation. Since training began in September of 2010, more than 5,500 students have participated in the Midwest HIT Consortium program, and new students are enrolling every month.
