Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) Support Professional - Six Month Online Training
Dates of Training: Janaury 6 - July 9, 2014
Suggested Background: Individuals training for this role will have a general background in information technology or health information management.
Nearly three hundred health care and information technology students and professionals have been trained by Sinclair's Workforce Development Division over the last three years in a program designed to increase the number of Health Information Technology (HIT) workers in Ohio.
Sinclair is conducting this training to assist in the transition of the nation to electronic health care records and ongoing technical support of this transition by building upon existing skills of incumbent/current workers, and assisting in the transition of laid-off health care and information technology professionals to new careers.
This online training will prepare students with the knowledge to assist providers to implement, manage, and analyze electronic health records to improve health care quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness. Students will gain an understanding of support services, above and beyond what is provided by the vendor, to be sure the technology functions properly and is configured to meet the needs of the redesigned practice workflow, including support in the post-go-live practice environment.
Workers in this role will be able to:
- Execute implementation project plans by installing hardware (as needed) and configuring software to meet practice needs, both pre-and-post-go-live.
- Incorporate usability principles into software configuration and implementation.
- Test the software against performance specifications.
- Interact with the vendors as needed to rectify technical problems that occur during the deployment process.
- Proactively identify software or hardware incompatibilities.
- Assist in the practice in identifying a data back-up and recovery solution, and ensure the solution is effective.
- Ensure that the mechanism for hardware/software recovery (e.g., data backup, or redundant systems) and related capabilities are appropriately implemented to minimize system downtime.
- Ensure the privacy and security functions are appropriately configured and activated in hardware and software.
- Document IT problems and evaluate the effectiveness of problem resolution.
- Assist end users with the execution of audits.
