ONC Releases I.T. Training Materials

The Office of the National Coordinator for HIT has made available at no cost an updated version of teaching materials used in the HITECH-funded community college health I.T. training programs.

The materials are available for all institutions of higher education and the general public. The materials were designed to support training for six I.T. roles: practice workflow and information management redesign specialist, clinician/practitioner consultant, implementation support specialist, implementation manager, technical/software support staff and trainer.

Instructors can modify and combine materials as they design courses. The materials include slide-based lectures with audio narration and transcripts, various learning activities, self-assessment questions/answers and instructor manuals. Also available are components for a hands-on lab using an educational version of the Veterans Affairs VistA electronic health record, which also can be downloaded at no cost.

More information and downloading are available at onc-ntdc.org.
