Creating a Skilled and Proficient eHealth/ Health IT Workforce

 

Staff shortages in critical areas such as nursing require the introduction of more innovative approaches to delivering health care, attracting and retaining staff.

In addition to clinical ability, these staff need to have information technology skills as well.


To make sure new and existing staff have the right skills to use eHealth, we have worked with our collaborators on the EU-US Workforce Development Workgroup and Global Health Workforce Council to create a comprehensive set of competencies and required skill sets for all health care workers.


We are working to align these competencies and with curricula and training programs.  We are also helping to provide training in all aspects of health information technology.
