Southwest is offering a Career Studies Certificate program in Electronic Medical Records (EMR). The courses in the program are scheduled to begin June 11, 2012.
The Electronic Medical Records Specialist Career Studies Certificate program will provide the student with core competencies needed for optimal organizational and technical support in a state-of-the-art healthcare facility. Focus is placed on healthcare specific topics such as medical record content and format; standard techniques for filing, maintenance, and acquisition of health information; processes of collecting, computing, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting data related to health care services; and the role that accrediting and licensing bodies play in the delivery of health care. Courses to complete the certificate requirements can be completed in two semesters either all online or in a combination of classroom and online training.
