A Message to our Current and Future Employees: Stay on the Cutting Edge of Health IT

02.06.2017

At Harmony Healthcare IT, we constantly seek out ways to stay on top of the latest technology advancements in clinical data management and interoperability.  We do that both by hiring the right people and by keeping our team educated.

Here is a list of universities, published by The Office for the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, which offers health IT workforce training sessions across the country and online.

  • Columbia University
  • John Hopkins
  • Oregon Health and Science University
  • University of Alabama
  • University of Health Sciences at Houston

The courses offered cover topics ranging from clinical informatics to value based care to population health management and interoperability.  We have encouraged our employees to explore the course offerings and also recommend that students who may apply for internships with our company do the same.

The landscape for healthcare delivery is changing as patient demands shift toward increased technology. For example, millennials are generally comfortable in a world governed by data, and research firm TripleTree reports that millennials have strong feelings about their healthcare experiences and health data:

  • 71% of millennials would be interested in using a mobile app to actively manage their well-being, review health records, and schedule appointments.
  • 63% of millennials would be interested in providing their health data from Wi-Fi / wearable devices to their doctor so they can personally monitor their well-being.
  • 60% are interested in using telehealth options (e.g. video chat with doctor) as an alternative to in-person office visits.

It’s important for healthcare IT workers to stay up to speed on the technology advancements and trends in customer care that are driving the need for new solutions.
