NORTHEAST – Doug Horner, co-founder and chief technology officer of Medical Informatics Engineering, will speak at Ivy Tech Community College−Northeast at 6 p.m. Oct. 26.

Horner conceived the WebChart product portfolio and the Med-Web network, now one of the few commercially viable United States HIOs. The MIE portfolio includes WebChart EHR, Enterprise Health, NoMoreClipboard and RIS/PACS products.
Ivy Tech is now offering the Health Information Technology program for degree-seeking students. Additionally, Ivy Tech Corporate College is collaborating with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) to offer six-month online training for working professionals in either healthcare or Information Technology.

With this training, healthcare professionals will learn the IT side of the equation and IT professionals will learn the healthcare side. The majority of the cost is being funded by the federal reinvestment and recovery act, (ARRA) and now is the perfect opportunity to get in the door of this exciting and emerging profession.
