New York, NY – December 13, 2011 –Information Technology (IT) workers looking for an exciting challenge as healthcare IT professionals, can finally benefit from a new opportunity to train online, while earning an industry-recognized national certification. The Healthcare Information Technology Professional (HITP) course provides the fundamental knowledge and skills required by technical professionals to support a medical practice, clinic or facility in its adoption of Health IT and beyond. Alameda Services, a New York based organization specializing in Healthcare courseware development covering Healthcare compliance, Healthcare IT, Data Management, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Electronic Health Records (EHR) training and workforce development, introduced the new course to enable IT professionals to leverage their knowledge of information and computer science, while learning the core concepts of the US healthcare system, medical information systems and business intelligence and analytics.
