Be In Demand - Healthcare IT Certification
Healthcare is a constantly evolving field. In recent years, the medical community has moved towards incorporating technology into their practices – using computer systems to manage patient records, access patient data to improve care; and improve efficiencies and quality of care by giving doctors, nurses and other practitioners valuable technology tools.
However, Healthcare IT presents a different challenge and way of thinking than conventional business information technology. Regulations such as HIPAA require certain practices in regards to data management and the security of patient information. IT professionals working in a healthcare environment must be aware of the unique organizational structures, business practices and technology requirements of a medical facility. To prepare professionals for careers in the rapidly growing field of Healthcare IT and to give healthcare employers confidence when hiring IT professionals to manage critical IT systems used by medical professionals, CompTIA has introduced the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician Certification.
