Prairie Health IT Network

CHAD has partnered with our friends at Prairie Health IT Network! It is vital for CHAD to provide useful training opportunities, such as the "It's a HIT!" Training Program.

The “It’s a HIT!” Training Program is designed to support organizations that recognize the importance of developing the health IT skills of their staff and providers. Health IT competency is vital to the future of your organization – Meaningful Use, Patient Centered Medical Home, UDS and Accountable Care all require your staff to effectively utilize health IT tools. Through a partnership with Dakota State University based in Madison, SD, the Prairie Health IT Network designed a comprehensive training program that boosts staff knowledge of general health IT concepts while providing training on the SuccessEHS EHR system. 

 “It’s a HIT!” combines three training phases including:

  • HIT Training,
  • EHR Training and
  • A Final Project

Students in the program will be prepared to earn a Certified Healthcare Technology Specialist Certification through the American Health Information Management Society.

The Prairie Health IT Network is currently seeking organizational partners for its 2016-2017 “It’s a HIT!” Training Program. To learn more, take a look at our HIT Training Page!
