Training Delivery

​Training is delivered completely online in an asynchronous format to meet the needs and time constraints of busy professionals. Trainees will have a designated date range to complete the coursework. Learning coaches are available in some courses to assist you and answer any questions. All of these courses could also be adapted for in-person or hybrid training. If you are from an organization interested in this type of delivery, please contact us. 

Time Commitment

Courses range in total duration, noted above and on the View Courses page. They can be completed whenever it is most convenient for the trainee, within the designated dates of the cohort. Cohorts are open for two (2) weeks at a time so trainees are advised to do their best to complete the course within those two weeks. If a trainee does not finish their course within the designated dates, they may be automatically enrolled in the next cohort. Individuals may take more than one course, however we recommend staggering your start dates when registering to allow for enough time to complete the training. 


Who can take the training?

Individuals, departments or entire organizations can sign up for this training. The only requirement is that trainees must be working in healthcare or for a health(care)-related organization. Please contact us if you would like to bring this training to your organization. 

How much does the training cost?

Taking this training is completely FREE of charge free of charge through May 2017 – funded by the ONC (Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT.)
To obtain CME credit there is a one-time $45 fee which covers all of the eligible courses.

Why is this training being offered?

The ONC has awarded two-year grants to seven educational institutions across the country intended to drive care transformation forward through health IT. The goals of the grant were to update all of the existing ONC curriculum, develop new curriculum in a number of high-need topics, and collectively train at least 7,000 healthcare professionals in the identified gap-areas where health IT has evolved in recent years. 

Program Partners

Normandale and Johns Hopkins University are partnering on the delivery of the e-learning we developed. Trainees in any of the listed courses will have a similar experience and a centralized location to access all of their courses.
