Workforce Development Center - Asheville - Buncombe County
Members of the first Asheville class of the Electronic Medical Records for Medical Office celebrate completion of the 12-week course. Offered by Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina and A-B Tech, the class teaches effective management, documentation and communication using electronic health information. The course is offered to meet the growing need created by the federal mandate that by 2014, all health records are available electronically. Nineteen completed the class and we have had our first job placement from the first class – a student working for a group of doctors at Mission Hospital making $15.75/hr.
