The college’s program will provide training in transferring information on medical records to electronic health records, security systems and ICD-10 coding. The program targets individuals looking for jobs in the health care industry, and workers in the industry seeking new skills for career advancement.
The Utah Workforce Education & Retraining for Knowledge & Skills program administers the training program under the grant. The Labor Department grant program is separate from a stimulus-funded health information technology training program that the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT administers, covering more than 70 community colleges across the nation.
