The overall goal of this course is to provide a continuing
education update for clinical informatics and health
information technology (HIT) professionals on healthcare data
analytics. The intended audience is those who have a clinical
focus on HIT and desire to learn more about the application of
data analytics to clinical settings. The course material is
derived from updated versions of the Health IT Curriculum of
the US Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC).
The course consists of 14 modules that are estimated to take a total of 18 hours to complete. The course is completely online, and consists of lectures and self-assessment quizzes. (We are not able to offer OHSU academic credit for the course.)
Although the course is open to all healthcare professionals
and health informatics/IT professionals, physicians will
additionally be able to obtain continuing medical education
(CME) credit through OHSU. For physicians certified in the new
Clinical Informatics Subspecialty, we are offering
Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (LLSA) credits towards
American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) Maintenance of
Certification Part II (MOC-II) requirements for the
We are committed to creating an environment of
interprofessional and interdisciplinary learning, and hope to
make continuing education credits for other health care
professions available in 2018.
