ELIZABETH- The Industry-Business Institute at Union County College now offers a series of free workshops for health care employees to prepare practitioners for changeover to electronic records of patient information. These are: Electronic Health Records (EHR), Personal Health Records (PHR) and ICD-10. These overview workshops are designed to prepare those who work for health care providers for the transition from paper records to EHRs by raising awareness of the improvements in patient care and in cost reduction electronic records provide.
Classes are four hours in length and will be offered through July and August in the Kellogg Building at the College’s Elizabeth campus. They can also be brought to the premises of health care organizations or doctors’ practices for classes of ten (10) or more participants. The classes are intended for employees in hospitals, home health centers, rehabilitation centers, long term care facilities, nursing homes, doctors’ offices and other providers of medical care.
The Electronic Health Records course will be held on July 17 and August 7. The Personal Health Records course will be held on July 31 and August 21. The ICD-10 course will be held on July 24 and August 14. All classes will be held from 1-5 p.m.
