Epic Systems Corporation makes software for mid-size and large medical groups, hospitals, and integrated healthcare organizations – working with customers that include community hospitals, academic facilities, children’s organizations, safety net providers and multi-hospital systems. Epic® has again been named the #1 Overall Software Vendor for 2010 by KLAS*. For their healthcare organization clients, Epic Systems provides a wide variety of EMR systems training programs, and subsequently methods to become Epic® EMR Certified. This particular training and certification is provided exclusively by Epic Systems and only for their clients and their consulting agency partners’ staff. To become Epic® system certified is much sought after nationwide, because it indicates to healthcare organizations and consulting agency employers of one’s EMR Systems specialized knowledge and proficiency to carry out the intricate requirements to safely and efficiently implement this vendor’s EMR system.
I’m well aware of this process as I have written about including my most popular post ‘I Got Certified for Healthcare IT Jobs – You Can too! For me, this process to get Epic® EMR Vendor certified has been the very best career advancement I have experienced in my 25 year-old Healthcare Information Technology profession. Currently there are many, many new and exciting ways to get ‘Clinical Informatics’ education and/or degrees, including the ones being posted by my fellow bloggers here at Healthcare IT Today. I have also mentioned in my blogs the great programs being offered by many community colleges nationwide due to the ARRA stimulus U.S. government funds for EMR / EHR certification programs. But for folks such as myself, who have been around Information Technology since the “dinosaur” days, EMR Vendor Certification is the best ‘On-The-Job’ training program I have ever experienced and has provided a method for me to more than double my salary and/or hourly rate in 7 years, has allowed me to travel to work at hospitals and clinics nationwide, has expanded my IT skills to now include clinical workflow knowledge, and to be involved with the most exciting (and very challenging) cutting edge career happening today! I have studied and worked very hard in acquiring three (3) Epic® EMR application certifications, I have completed 7 years of EMR implementation work assignments, and have this wonderful opportunity to share all of this through my blogs.
This year of 2011, my blogs and upcoming webinars will focus on EMR Vendor Certification experiences and how to apply this expertise and skill set in getting and keeping EMR Jobs and/or EMR consulting assignments.
