GE Creates Healthcare IT Educational Program

January 8, 2008 - GE Healthcare has initiated a vendor-independent educational program, designed specifically for biomedical and technical professionals, to enhance their knowledge of IT concepts for healthcare, identifying core IT skills critical to servicing and supporting today’s integrated and networked medical devices.

The Healthcare IT curriculum offers an educational program that supports the entire biomedical community, regardless of equipment or vendor choice. The foundation course, Essentials of Healthcare IT, explores the fundamentals of connectivity. Hands-on labs let students build and troubleshoot flat, switched, routed and wireless networks, using actual equipment, not simulations. Essentials of Healthcare IT is a pre-requisite for the Healthcare IT curriculum.

Benefits of the Healthcare IT curriculum reportedly include increased IT skills, better-informed decisions, faster repair, and improved communications with the IT department. The hospital benefits from reduced equipment downtime, improved workflow, more accurate diagnosis of problems, resulting in improved patient care.
