S.M.C.C. Health Information Technology Program

Southern Maine Community College, in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services, is offering classes to train workers to aid medical institutions in the installation, implementation and management of Electronic Health Record systems. This training will provide students with the skills they need to analyze, implement, manage and support Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems.  If you have visited a health professional recently you might have noticed that your medical records are starting to be stored in a computer database instead of a filing cabinet.  In the near future, as a result of an initiative by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), all medical records in the United States will need to be stored and shared electronically. Each of the two main tracks is taught fully online over a 6 month period by professional instructors in their field. Each track teaches 11 classes that run for 2-6 weeks consecutively.

The Engineering Track:
Prepares professional IT workers to install, maintain and support EHR systems.

The Analyst/Consulting Track:
Prepares professional medical workers to reorganize workflow to take full advantage of the features of health IT systems.

FULL SCHOLARSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE  to those who qualify!   For detailed course descriptions visit  www.smccme.edu/HIT
