Ed TittelCCHIT Cert To Be Withdrawn from Market

Just recently, Healthcare IT News/HEI Watch published an interview with Alisa Ray, CEO of the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) in which she revealed that her organization is exiting the Electronic Health Records (EHR) certification business, and will concentrate on advisory services and though leadership going forward. This confirms a strong suspicion I'd formed when recently updating a survey of leading Healthcare IT (HIT) certifications for Tom's IT Pro, and shows that despite strong demand and rapid growth in Healthcare IT, not all certifications (or the programs they inhabit, or sponsors who deliver them) are made alike.

Ed TittelA Tale of Two Driving Licenses

Once upon a time, a European consortium sponsored a basic computer literacy credential called the International Computer Driving License, or ICDL. I'm not sure if it was a matter of uptake outside Europe, or if it's because various European -- especially British (these credentials are the brainchildren of the British Computer Society, or BCS, a veritable fountain of standards and guidelines for computing across the Commonwealth) -- interests have decided to invest in ECDL as part of local competency and capability guidelines and requirements. Whatever the case may be, you'll now find both ICDL and ECDL tracks available around the world and in Europe, respectively. If you dig around right here at PITC, in fact, you'll even find an ICDL Exam Cram to read, though it's probably at least a little out-of-date by now (it published in 2004).

Ed TittelJob Search Tends for 2014

There's a fascinating story in today's digital edition of Parade magazine (and here I was, thinking it only came as a supplement to my Sunday paper). It's entitled "5 Job Search Trends to Watch for in 2014," and it comes from regular contributor Heather R. Huhman. The information is good (and interesting) enough that I'll simply recap and comment on the story in this blog post.
