In last quarter’s newsletter we were excited to announce our Galen Certified-Enterprise EHR Application Specialist training and certification program. Today we are proud to share the news that this quarter we added another eight employees to this distinguished group!
During the 7 weeks of training not only are all modules of the Enterprise product discussed in great detail with an added emphasis of clinical relevance, but each student must demonstrate a complete knowledge and understanding of the Certified Workflows. Prior to taking both a written and verbal examination on Enterprise fundamentals, each student must successfully build out an entire Enterprise environment from the ground up!
Please join me in congratulating the following…Galen Certified™ Enterprise EHR Application Specialist!
