FDTC Health Information Management students learn about newly provided medical record software from iMedicor.
Florence-Darlington Technical College medical students in the College’s Continuing Education program and degree classes have received a software donation from the electronic medical records company, iMedicor, worth over half million dollars. The Florida based company is donating 20 user licenses that will allow students to experience “real world” situations. Their value is $590 thousand! Angie Brown, director of FDTC’s CE Healthcare programs, reviewed several electronic medical records software providers. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity,” said Brown, “After searching for the most modern and effective health information exchange systems, we decided that none we had examined could match up to iMedicor’s.” “This gift will help our students achieve their goal of entering the medical field,” Florence-Darlington Technical College President, Dr. Ben Dillard said. “I just can’t express enough appreciation to iMedicor for their generous donation. With these licenses, our students will obtain even more hands-on training, therefore, strengthening our Continuing Education program.”
iMedicor’s software allows doctors and medical professional to send and receive secure emails and attachments. The software is HIPAA compliant. HIPPA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which is the Federal law designed to keep medical records private. Robert McDermott, president of iMedicor, said, “The donation of these licenses will provide FDTC’s students with a real life, hands on educational experience.” iMedicor’s donation consists of 20 software licenses. Ten of the licenses are for medical providers and 10 are for dental healthcare providers. Jill Lewis, vice president of FDTC’s Educational Foundation, thanked iMedicor for its donation saying, “These licenses will help our students learn about modern electronic medical record keeping and will allow them to become better healthcare providers.”
