RPMS EHR CAC Informatics Training Grid

The EHR CAC Informatics Training Grid helps to lay the foundation and structure for the Clinical Application Coordinator (CAC) Informaticist career path. The objectives are to identify sequentially ordered courses that build on participant knowledge and provide the necessary tools to promote CAC Informaticist success in their various roles.

**Important Note**

The CAC Informatics Training Grid provides a current state guide to role-based training considering both existing curricula and identified needs for future curriculum development. This grid was developed in collaboration with the IHS Chief Health Informatics Officer, Informatics Program Manager, Deployment Manager, Area CACs, and field users, and included consultative input from the Office of the National Coordinator. RPMS training is undergoing assessment and improvement. The RPMS training sessions offered reflect high priority needs based on the training grid, collected Training Needs Assessment data, and input via area CACs. Depending on demand and capacity, additional trainings sessions may be added throughout the year. The CAC Informatics Training Grid may also be modified as the OIT training program evolves to meet field needs.
