Health IT program at the University of Texas at Austin receives $2.7 million in federal funding
Date:8/27/2010

AUSTIN, TexasThe University of Texas at Austin's new Health Information Technology program has received $2.7 million as a part of the Professional University Resources and Education for Health Information Technology (PURE HIT) consortium project supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology.

The program graduated its first class of 54 students this summer.

"Our first graduates are really impressive," says Dr. Leanne Field, director of the program. "They are entering a field that is rapidly growing and will only continue to gain importance as we move toward electronic health records across the country. The industry demand is very high."

Texas State University is the lead institution for the PURE HIT consortium and the University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics is also a partner. Total funding for the consortium is $5.4 million, the largest award in the nation funded for university-based education in health information technology.

The University of Texas at Austin certificate program is the first in the nation among those receiving ONC health information technology funding to graduate students.

At the university, the funding will support the establishment of a total of four programs in the health information technology field:

  • the summer Health Information Technology Certificate for recent graduates,
  • a Health Information Privacy and Security certificate for computer science students,
  • a Public Health Informatics certificate for public health students, and
  • a Health Information Technology Sub-Specialist certificate for graduate students.

"A groundbreaking transformation is occurring in the delivery of health care in the United States," says Field. "The College of Natural Sciences and the School of Biological Sciences are rapidly responding to this need."
