TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (November 18, 2010) -
In the spring of 2011, Tallahassee Community College is expanding its offerings to include a Healthcare Informatics Specialist Certificate. Offered through the College’s Division of Technology and Professional Programs, the certificate will prepare students to work in the expanding field of medical information and records.
With more and more hospitals transitioning to electronic medical records—and America’s population of seniors growing—the demand for qualified healthcare informatics specialists has grown significantly. More than just record-keepers, those who work in the health informatics field are an important part of the medical environment—managing databases, providing analysis and assisting doctors and nurses in understanding how to use research and data to help patients.
“This new program will give students the training that prepares them for important and in-demand careers, while also ensuring that the Big Bend continues to have a talented workforce to meet the community’s expanding healthcare needs,” said Kate Stewart, dean of Technology and Professional Programs. “The scope and sophistication of healthcare data is increasing and starting in the spring TCC’s students will have a prime opportunity to be a part of this dynamic and booming field.”
TCC is accepting applications for the spring semester and those interested in taking classes are encouraged to visit www.GoToTCC.com to register.
