AlamedaServices Receives National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Approval; Prepares Students for Certified Electronic Health Record Specialists (CEHRS) Exam

New York City-based Healthcare IT Consulting and Training Organization Becomes Training Affiliate for Industry Standard Healthcare Record Keeping Specialist Certification
New York, NY – June 28, 2011 – Alameda Services, a Health Information Technology (HIT) consulting and training organization specializing in workforce development, has been recognized as a training affiliate for the CEHRS Exam, administered by the National Healthcare Association (NHA). As an affiliate, Alameda Services is able to prepare students for the rigorous national certification as part of its program.

“Our company is committed to producing well-trained, well-educated and technically-savvy professionals,” says Lena Feygin, Dip LC, executive vice president and director of business development for Alameda Services. “We are delighted that our program has been approved by NHA. Our powerful workforce development strategies provide students with the knowledge, abilities and skills they need to succeed in a wide variety of healthcare settings.”
NHA, established in 1989, grants approval to a select group of organizations that demonstrate compliance with the highest industry standards and provide an optimum learning experience for students.
In an effort to enhance the provision of healthcare and promote patient safety, NHA set forth specific guidelines for testing the competency level of potential EHR specialists. NHA certification is a nationally-acclaimed credential that allows healthcare professionals to be recognized for their proficiencies.
“Many private practices, hospitals and allied organizations require national certification as a competency standard,” adds Feygin. “Even though our EHR training program is not centered around the certification, it qualifies Alameda graduates for the exam and reflects the value they derive in the classroom.  The length of our program, its quality and impact, are carefully planned. And all the materials incorporated into the curricula, are based on the expertise of the subject matter experts that have participated in the development of EHRs.”
As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, there is an increased demand for well-trained and highly-skilled healthcare professionals. At a time of persistent unemployment, benefits to obtaining a certification may result in increased pay scale, better job opportunities, more career advancement, and job security.
“At Alameda we prepare our students not only to succeed but to excel,” says Feygin. “The length of our program exceeds hours required by NHA. We ensure that our students are well-equipped to navigate the competitive landscape of the healthcare industry and enjoy rewarding careers for years to come.”
