HCitC has, for the first time in India come out with a 'Fast Track', job oriented, online course in HL7 that helps you to earn an Internationally valid US Certification in HL7, a Healthcare Interoperability language, in as less as 2 months! This course is designed for individuals with little or no background in healthcare Informatics who are determined to break into, and grow in this highly challenging yet lucrative field.
The three groups of people who will gain most from this course are:
Doctors (allopathic, homeopathic, ayurvedic, etc), dental
and other paramedical professionals like lab assistants, physiotherapists and dieticians.
2. Graduates and Post graduates with an MBA, BBA, BSc, MSc, BA or MA
3. Qualified IT professional who want to move into Healthcare Informatics
A well known IOM (US) report states that as much as
98,000 patients die in US hospitals due to medical errors! We know
today that many of these errors can be avoided, and quality of
healthcare improved by the use of Healthcare Informatics. Healthcare informatics is a challenging domain
that combines skill-sets from healthcare, informatics,
communications and business administration. The goal of
Healthcare is to provide quality based patient care which is based
on efficient access to, and use of clinical information to make
appropriate and efficient clinical decisions. Healthcare Informatics
strategizes, implements, optimizes and maintains IT applications,
processes and systems that support the above mentioned goal.
important part of this domain is the requirement to seamlessly exchange
clinical information between various healthcare organisations. HL7 is a
that enables interoperability in healthcare applications.
Healthcare IT careers are well paying. However the path to a well-paying job is long and hard. You can now take the short cut to quickly acquiring skill-sets in the field of HL7. This fast track, online course helps you out-shine other candidates in any interview for high paying HL7 jobs in India, the US, UK, Australia, Canada and other European countries. The demand for these resources is there at every hospital, health insurer, Healthcare IT corporate, and pharmaceutical company. Professionals like doctors, nurses, para-medicals, coders, IT programmers, project managers, analysts marketing experts who obtain proper education and training are more likely to realize the benefits of multiple employment opportunities *.
So what is HL7?
"Founded in 1987, Health Level Seven International (HL7) is a US not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards developing organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information that supports clinical practice and the management, delivery and evaluation of health services." (Reference: www.HL7.org)
This goal presupposes availability of adequate resources trained in HL7
Regrettably there is an acute shortage of such trained resources, in India, the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Europe and China, in fact literally globally. This shortage is especially acute in the US where the government has mandated a massive thrust in Healthcare Informatics and has provided adequate funding for the same. Unfortunately, there are limited schools that train on HL7 and most of them are in the US, UK and other western countries.
The student is provided adequate knowledge in the form of presentations, quizzes and hands-on exercises to get him (a) HL7 certification ready, (b) ready to start with simple HL7 projects and (c) confident enough to apply for HL7 jobs. A generous amount of time is spent on hands-on workshops* and real-world concepts that provide the student with the confidence to work on live projects. The total focus of this course is on Job oriented implementation skillsets rather than outdated theoretical knowledge.

*Please Note: We improve your skillsets by training you in HL7. How well you learn depends finally, on you. We do not offer jobs. Nor do we assure a job since getting a job depends on the multiple factors that may include amongst others - the country, local demand, the student's background skills, the student's personality, visa rules, local laws, etc
