August 13 – November 26, 2013
Tuesday and Wednesday

This 95-hour Electronic health Record (EH R) Management program prepares students to understand and use electronic records in a medical practice. Access to health information is changing the ways doctors care for their patients. Doctors now have access to a patient’s medical history, surgeries, allergies to medicines, and recent doctor’s visits all at the press of a button. This recent technology that intertwines health information from a variety of sources is known as an electronic health record.

An electronic health record (EH R) includes computerized lifelong healthcare data from a variety of sources where every encounter an individual has with the healthcare system is documented and compiled for quick access. Electronic Health Record professionals are educated in the implementation and management of electronic health information using common electronic data interchange systems such as HL7, CDISC and DICOM. Students will learn through classroom and computer lab training the necessary components consistent with maintaining the medical, legal, accreditation and regulatory requirements of the electronic health records and database.

After the successful completion of this program, students will be prepared to sit for the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified Electronic Health Record Specialist (CEHRS)
exam.
