Based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Education and other independent studies, over the next five years, there is an estimated shortfall of 51,000 qualified health IT workers required to meet the needs of hospitals and physicians as they move to adopt electronic health care systems.

According to a recent article in Forbes the human resources firm, Adecco Staffing U.S., ranks Jacksonville as the third best city to find a job right now, with heavy hiring in fields such as education, health care and IT, and an unemployment rate of 6.5%.

Although the Health Information Technology (HIT) Certificate program is geared toward professionals with a background in health care (medical), information technology and/or project management, a course track has been created to provide career training for individuals with no prior health care or IT background.

Enrollment in the Health Information Technology Certificate program is not required to attend any of the individual courses. Admission criteria will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. A certificate of completion will be given for the individual course title.
