This course was originally funded by a grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC). However that funding has ended, and the following fees will now be required for the course:

Course and Credit

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 subspecialty.

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.

Within the Sakai system, each module will provide an overview of learning objectives, one or more lecture segments (in MP4 format, viewable on both computers and mobile devices), optional additional materials, and a self-assessment quiz of 5-10 multiple-choice questions. (Those seeking CME or MOC-II credit must achieve a correct rate of 70% to pass; each quiz will be able to be taken up to 5 times.)
