Our nation is in growing short-supply of trained Health IT professionals. While CHISP® professionals rise to the top of the resume pile, under-qualified candidates from lower job-growth industries are jumping to interview with their incomplete skill sets.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Education, has indicated a national shortage of at least 51,000 qualified Health IT workers needed in hospitals and practices as they adopt electronic health records. The government indicates these jobs will increase fastest through 2018. To support our members and the health care communities with this growing problem, ASHIM offers online health IT training to prepare students in four months (or less) for these high-demand Health IT jobs.
