Because of the success of the electronic health records program offered through Dyersburg State Community College, the college will offer another round of classes starting Jan. 16.
The program is made possible through a HI-TECH Workforce Development program funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Because of this funding, the college is able to offer the program free of charge.
By 2015, federal regulations will require everyone to have electronic health records (EHR). The work required to reach this goal is expected to create a high demand in several types of health information technology (HIT) professions. To meet this demand, DSCC is one of 81 community colleges nationwide and one of three in Tennessee offering this intensive non-degree education program to prepare people for these jobs.
Of the 81 community colleges across the country offering the electronic health records training program, Dyersburg State Community College now ranks fifth in the nation number of total students enrolled. This includes areas with large populations such as Atlanta.
