OHSU announces the 25th offering of its premier and original 10x10 informatics course beginning on Dec. 1. The first OHSU course was offered in July 2005 with Dr. William Hersh, who has since offered two dozen versions of this course. OHSU has also partnered with specialty associations to offer 10x10 courses aimed at specific organizations and populations, such as the American College of Emergency Physicians, American Dietetic Association, and the California Healthcare Foundation.
The OHSU 10 X 10 course provides a broad understanding of the field from the vantage point of those who implement, lead, and develop IT solutions for improving health, healthcare, public health, and biomedical research. It provides up-to-date details on current events in the field, including "meaningful use" of electronic health records specified by the HITECH Act of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
