IU-Regenstrief programs targeted to alleviate shortage of health IT workforce
Date:5/6/2011

INDIANAPOLIS Specialized one- and two-year Indiana University graduate certificate and master's programs designed to increase the number of health information technology specialists in Indiana and nationwide will expand enrollment by 50 percent, thanks in part to Recovery Act funding. Two of the programs will be available as distance learning opportunities.

In collaboration with the Regenstrief Institute, an internationally respected biomedical and public health informatics innovator dedicated to improving health by enhancing the quality and delivery of medical care, and the IU School of Medicine, the IU School of Informatics at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis is addressing the growing workforce needs for qualified health IT recruits with an array of specialized one- and two-year graduate programs offering a combination of classroom instruction, distance accessible learning opportunities, and on the job training.

These programs, initiated last year with a class of 15, are supported by a competitively awarded training grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). This $1.4 million in Recovery Act funding is part of a $118 million investment by ONC in rapidly and sustainably increasing the availability of skilled health IT professionals needed to support the widespread adoption and meaningful use of health IT.

The first class includes nurses, physicians, computer programmers and individuals from the business world. Most are already launched on an initial career, some in health care and some not. With ONC support, they are being offered a variety of coursework options and are undertaking practicums at leading regional health institutions. Many are employed full or almost full time, but are required to complete six courses and a 180-hour practicum within the calendar year.
