HIT Workforce Accelerator

In a report specifically focused on HIT talent needs in Tennessee, the Brookings Institution identified a greater need in the state to focus on developing workforce talent. TN HIMSS and Belmont University formed the Workforce Accelerator program in 2014 to prepare Tennessee’s HIT workforce to address not only local needs, but to help the state take the lead with HIT initiatives. There have been over 100 graduates of the program through December 2017 and sessions are available in classroom and remote host sites.
