Greenway Health launches Interoperability University to train tomorrow’s technology innovators
Interoperability — the secure, free-flowing sharing of data among information systems and healthcare providers, patients and payers — is an essential foundation for improving care coordination and both financial and clinical outcomes. But knowledgeable experts in this critical field are often in short supply. Greenway Health, named one of Georgia’s top 10 most innovative companies by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), has developed a program that recruits and trains people to become the interoperability experts of today and tomorrow through the new Greenway Interoperability University.
The six-week, on-the-job program features a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on exercises, assessments, mentor shadowing and ongoing learning. Students, many of whom are recent college graduates, are trained by interoperability experts who have many years of experience.
The first two classes recently held their graduation ceremony at the company’s Carrollton, Georgia headquarters. Staff are based in various Greenway Health locations, from Carrollton to Greenway’s new Atlanta development center in Cobb County’s Galleria office park, as well as offices in Tampa, Birmingham and other locations. Having career opportunities in multiple locations enables Greenway to successfully compete for these important innovation resources to best serve the growing needs of its customers.
