Want to improve health care in rural communities? Be a part of the Rural Health IT Workforce Program.
HRSA-13-251 solicits applications for the Rural Health Information Technology (HIT) Workforce Program, which supports formal rural health networks that focus on activities relating to the recruitment, education, training, and retention of HIT specialists.
The program will also provide support to rural health networks that can leverage and enhance existing HIT training materials to develop formal training programs that will provide instructional opportunities to current health care staff, local displaced workers, rural residents, veterans, and other potential students.
These formal training programs will result in the development of a cadre of HIT workers who can help rural hospitals and clinics implement and maintain systems, such as electronic health records (EHR), telehealth, home monitoring and mobile health technology, and meet EHR meaningful use standards.
