The rapid development in health information technologies is generating a corresponding demand for e-learning programmes. Almost every campus, education centre, and health care business across the Internet is offering or is planning to offer some type of health based education initiative. The eLearning Center provides a core framework for marketing education and training programmes across the member community and the Internet. It also provides a free "events module" for members to use when announcing e-learning courses and initiatives to the health care industry. Network members also have access to eHIT instructional design services including video productions and flash presentations for mobile devices as part of the eLearning Center expansion.
"As new technologies develop around the delivery of health care services, the demand for e-learning opportunities will develop as well", stated Richard L. Austin, eHIT Network Director. "Any health care provider, service, or product developer will need to add an e-learning component to their marketing to be competitive, and the eLearning Center and its support services will assist with that effort", he added.
The eHIT network is designed to be part of the National Health Information Network (NHIN) and the Consolidated Health Informatics (CHI) initiatives, the health care components of President George W. Bush's eGov Initiatives. Membership in the network is free to any individual, clinic, service provider, or product developer focused on health information technologies.
