Free Training Sessions for Businesses, Not-For-Profits, Healthcare Professionals Available at Mercer Institute at MCCC
WEST WINDSOR – Training sessions addressing changes in healthcare laws and classes aimed at upgrading workforce skills will be offered free of charge at the Mercer Institute of Management and Technology Training (MI) at Mercer County Community College (MCCC).
“The business world in general, and the healthcare sector in particular, has seen some enormous changes in just the past few months, and more are coming,” said Elaine Weinberg, director of MI. “We are fortunate to have entered into partnerships with both the public and private sector that gives us the ability to offer training sessions addressing these challenges, all at no cost to employers.”
Thanks to a partnership with the New Jersey Business and Industry Association and the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development, MI will offer employers on-site training for employees in English as a Second Language, Personal Computer Skills (focusing on Microsoft Office products); and Communication Skills. Training is available on a first-come, first served basis, and grant funding is limited.
MI will also offer three free training sessions geared toward healthcare professionals and organizations entitled “Readying the Workforce for Healthcare Transformation,” which addresses changes in healthcare law affecting electronic health records (EHR), personal health records (PHR), and the international classification of diseases (ICD). The ICD-10 Overview will be held Wednesday, Sept. 11; the EHR Overview will be Wednesday, Sept. 18; and the PHR Overview will be Wednesday, Sept. 25. All sessions will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The electronic record keeping sessions are made possible through the NJ Department of Labor in partnership with the NJ Hospital Association, NJ Health Information Technology Extension Center, and the NJ College Consortium.
A third training session focuses on not-for-profit organizations that work with individuals without health insurance, or have inadequate health care coverage. This NJ FamilyCare session provides an overview of the changes in New Jersey’s publicly-funded health insurance program. The training will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, with additional sessions scheduled for Oct. 31, Nov. 21, and Dec. 13.
