According to a September 2012 article in U.S. News and World Report, “…the need is huge for professionals who can help acquire, manage, and use information to improve health and manage payments.” In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the world of electronic health information is expected to grow by at least 21 percent between 2010 and 2020, and is expected to add at least 37,700 new jobs to the U.S. economy in one decade.

Join Elizabeth (Betty) Black and David Schlaifer as they discuss a unique partnership between Hillsborough Community College (HCC) and Doctors Administrative Solutions (DAS) -- both headquartered in Tampa, Florida -- where they are joining forces to create a public-private partnership for electronic health information to narrow and prevent skills gaps.
