HEALTH IT CERTIFICATION ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT UPDATE TO CURRICULUM OF
CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL IN ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (CPEHR) VERSION 10

CPEHR Version 10 is the tenth major upgrade to this program since first released ten years ago, in 2005. This latest version focuses on optimizing use of healthcare organizations' EHRs. While covering all aspects of the federal incentive program for meaningful use of EHR (M.U.), the new version of the CPEHR training program also includes full coverage of health IT relating to:

  • Health reform initiatives
  • Big data analytics
  • Technical, semantic, and process interoperability
  • Health information exchange
  • Quality data management
  • Expanded types of clinical decision support
  • Workflow and process improvement for patient safety

Many organizations are at the point that they have implemented the main elements of EHR. But more work is needed for all clinicians to fully embrace and make the best possible use of the technology. New technology demands are also impacting existing EHRs. Some organizations are considering replacement of their EHR to go beyond the basic requirements. Others are making significant shifts toward purchasing complementary technology that will help them prepare for value-based purchasing arrangements, significant levels of care coordination in a risk-based payment structure, and new models of care, such as telehealth, home monitoring, patient-centered medical homes, etc.

Those who have taken a previous version of the CPEHR program may wish to consider taking one or more of the courses within the new version of the CPEHR program to update their knowledge and for continuing education.

HEALTH IT CERTIFICATION - INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES NEW
CPEHR-I, CPHIE-I, CPHIT-I, AND CPORA-I CERTIFICATIONS

Health IT Certification announces a new series of professional certifications for the international market outside the United States. As the planning and implementation of HITC expands rapidly in several global markets, there are significant similarities in the US approach and the clinical and business needs of the countries around the world experiencing this challenging, complex undertaking. Training to develop an understanding of the knowledge to be successful in health IT is key for all stakeholders leading these efforts. The same training courses are offered for both US and International markets. The examination process has been modified for the International program to take into account that most students do not have previous knowledge of how the US healthcare system works or its legal principles. Full information on the International program is available at www.healthitcertificationintl.com.
