Capital Community College will provide training and education to up to 300 information management specialists and clinicians in the emerging field of health informatics over the next two years.
Individuals will participate in training to develop competencies in health information technology for the workforce roles of practice workflow and information management redesign specialists, clinician/practitioner consultants and software support technicians.
