“The future for the national healthcare landscape is being designed in Nashville. Over 400 companies have been erected here to retool the industry. How we do healthcare today will look different from the future. The TN HIMSS Workforce Accelerator is one of the best tools available for tomorrow’s leaders”.Brian M. Shake
“My journey brought me to Nashville with a passion for a career in HIT. I had no Healthcare experience, but I connected with the Health Information Technology Accelerator Program. For those serious about a career in Healthcare, this program provides a solid foundation. I transitioned from no Healthcare experience to a role in HIT using the tools I received during this program. I highly recommend this program to start or advance your career in HIT”.Carla Dukes
