Health IT Certification provides professional training and certification for those responsible for planning, selecting, implementing, and managing electronic health records (EHR) and other health information technology (HIT). A distinguished advisory panel and faculty have pooled their experience to create a training program that is practical, offering tools that directly relate to on-the-job needs. The certification process has been developed by a team of both knowledgeable experts as well those with a background in psychometrics to ensure that the certification process is valid and role-based. Exam items test at the application, synthesis and evaluation levels through case studies and scenarios. Any one who believes they are competent in the common body of knowledge for the CPEHR or CPHIT may register to write an exam, either at one of the on-site training program seminars or online.
