In collaboration with Stanford University Open Learning Initiative (OLI) and the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), Bellevue College and St. Louis Community College developed a year-long, online Health Information Technology Foundations course. The content aligns with the HIMSS CAHIMS (Certified Associate in Healthcare Information & Management Systems) industry certification. The course is designed to provide both a solid foundation in health IT concepts and preparation for the certification exam.
The course includes ~100 hours of “seat time,” equivalent to 6 semester credits or 10 quarter credits. This course was the result of more than 20,000 hours of development effort.
These top-of-the line instructional materials include:
