Unemployment in India is rising. Or to put it differently, un-employability is rising! There are several reports devoting reams to this subject. The effort by NSDC is a step in the right direction but unless the 'unemployed' take an interest in their own fate, it is going to be so much water under the bridge.
We are offering a "CERTIFICATE COURSE IN HEALTHCARE INFORMATICS" for graduates only!
Healthcare informatics is a challenging sunrise domain that combines skill-sets from healthcare, informatics, communications and business administration. The goal of Healthcare is to provide quality based patient care which is based on efficient access to, and use of clinical information to make appropriate and efficient clinical decisions. Healthcare Informatics strategizes, implements, optimizes and maintains IT applications, processes and systems that support the above mentioned goal. This goal presupposes availability of adequate resources trained in Healthcare Informatics.
Regrettably there is an acute shortage of such trained resources. Healthcare Informatics is a sunrise sector and is rapidly growing, with a demand for resources, in the health care industry. India has a requirement for 27,000 professionals annually and this number is far from achieved. Only about 130-odd aspirants are graduating country-wide and none of them are certified by a recognised body causing some consternation when they are required to perform on the job.
Our certificate in Healthcare Informatics and HL7 (USA) automatically opens up a large number of jobs in India and abroad (US, UK, Australia, Canada, Europe and China) in multiple sectors that include, amongst others, IT companies, Medical Device companies, Hospitals, Labs, Nursing homes, Consulting entities, Insurance companies, Pharmas, Government and Training organizations to name a few.
The trainer my company has tied up with is a senior clinician and healthcare Informatician, bringing with him over 30 years of rich and diversified experience in Healthcare, Telehealth and healthcare Informatics. His Core competencies in Healthcare and Healthcare informatics span Consultancy (incl Risk, change and transition) ,Strategy, Project Management , Training and implementation. He has enjoyed a near 100% success rate training aspirants in this domain since 2008.
