CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician Certificate

By on November 15, 2012

Broad-based IT industry association CompTIA has long been certifying professional competency in various areas of computer technology and information systems. In July 2011, the group added an exam for healthcare IT technicians.

The CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certificate addresses five areas: regulatory requirements, organizational behavior, IT operations, healthcare’s unique business operations, and security. It is intended for people with basic knowledge of practice workflow and clinical IT systems, and either 500 hours of real-world experience or who have CompTIA A+ certification.

Training for the Healthcare IT Technician exams has, like with other CompTIA certificate programs, spawned a cottage industry of test prep through third-party education companies. Those offering training for the health IT exam include Premier Knowledge SolutionsCED Solutions, and CBT Nuggets.
