Scott Community offers new health technology course

A new Health Information Technology program is being offered by Scott Community College for students interested in a health care career.

Nine students are currently enrolled. The courses include medical transcription and medical coding for reimbursement.

Scott Community began offering the program this year because a survey of local health care providers indicated a need for educational training for health information professionals.

"Students have adapted very well and this program will create many employment opportunities for those seeking a career in health care," said Barbara Foster, the program instructor.

For more information about the program, contact the Scott Community College Registrar at (319) 441-4100.
