April 11, 2017 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD) today introduced through its Technology Solutions business, formerly a division of Avnet, an innovative, new education and training component of Technology Solutions’ HealthPath™ University and HealthPath Internship programs. Partners participating in these programs can gain the necessary skills and knowledge to apply for CPHIMS (Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems) certification. CPHIMS is a well-regarded professional certification program for experienced healthcare information and management systems professionals.

CPHIMS certification demonstrates that a professional has met a standard of proficiency and competence in healthcare information and management systems, and has reached an important milestone in their career development. Many healthcare organizations require that technical and IT job applicants have CPHIMS certification, and encourage current employees to obtain it.

“A CPHIMS certification allows our partners to demonstrate mastery of the complex systems that healthcare facilities require to support the growing demands on their technical infrastructure, and offers their customers additional confidence in their abilities to provide them with the best possible solutions to support these needs,” said Jim Bindon, director, vertical and technology markets at Technology Solutions, Americas. “Our unique HealthPath University and Internship programs are the perfect environments to further develop the knowledge and experience necessary to obtain this important distinction.”

Technology Solutions partner Logicalis is an international IT solutions and managed services provider that has had several of its consultants participate in the HealthPath Internship and obtain their CPHIMS certification.

“Logicalis has seen genuine value from our team members who have earned the CPHIMS certification by completing the Technology Solutions’ HealthPath Internship,” said Vince DeLuca, CEO, Logicalis. “The skills, tools, and knowledge gained through this intense learning experience help us in our commitment to delivering the highest levels of service and real-world solutions that are demanded by our healthcare partners.”

A wide range of professionals hold the CPHIMS certification:

  • Over 30 percent of CPHIMS certification holders are chief information officers (CIOs) or vice presidents/directors in the areas of information systems and technology.
  • More than half of CPHIMS certification holders work in hospitals and academic medical centers, and
  • Nearly one out of 10 CPHIMS certification holders is affiliated with the military or the federal government.
  • Outside of the U.S., Canada, Asia and the Middle East are the fastest-growing areas for CPHIMS certification.

Technology Solutions is proud to partner with HonorHealth, a leading Arizona-based healthcare system, to conduct the HealthPath Internships at HonorHealth’s medical center facilities in Scottsdale, Ariz. Technology Solutions, formerly a division of Avnet, was awarded a spot on the 2016 IDC Health Insights HealthTech Rankings Enterprise Top 25 listing.
