Biomedical and Health Informatics On-Line Course for Emergency Physicians
10x10 with Oregon Health & Science University in conjunction with ACEP
The 10x10 (“ten by ten”) 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 the "meaningful use" of electronic health records (EHRs) specified by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. It also covers key issues of standards and interoperability, system implementation, and healthcare data analytics.
The learning materials of the course are fully online and delivered in an asynchronous manner. The course includes online forum discussion. It runs from July 5, 2017 to October 28, 2017, and culminates with a one-day in-person session at the 2017 Scientific Assembly in Washington, DC, on Saturday, October 28, 2017, from 9 am to 3 pm. This is the 7th annual offering of this course for Emergency Physicians.
The 10x10 program aims to provide introductory training to build the workforce that will enable clinically motivated use of IT to improve the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare and public health. Since the program was launched in 2005, over 2,300 people, mostly from the US but also from a variety of international locations, have completed the course. About 20% of those graduating have gone on to advanced study in the field.
