About the Program
The Workforce Components includes an updated and expanded set of health IT instructional materials, funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), to help healthcare workers and others stay current in the changing healthcare environment and deliver care more effectively.
The new instructional materials are in five areas relevant to improved care delivery: population health, care coordination and interoperable health IT systems, value-based care, healthcare data analytics and patient-centered care. These areas reflect changes in the U.S. healthcare system spurred by health reform to achieve better care, smarter spending and healthier people.
In addition, 20 existing instructional modules developed under ONC’s Curriculum Development Centers program were updated. These materials are relevant to physicians, nurses and other healthcare workers who utilize health IT in care delivery, and others in the broader healthcare system.
The existing instructional modules, which have been used by more than 10,000 educators around the world to date, include History of Health IT, Maintenance of Health IT Systems, Management and Leadership for Health IT, The Culture of Healthcare and more.
Many of these components are over 1 GB in size. Downloading may take up to 10 minutes depending on your connection.
