LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) announces a new Associate Degree Program for the Fall Semester 2014 on Prescott Hill. The new Program is Health Information Technology (HIT) through LRCC's Computer Technologies Department.
"LRCC faculty and staff are excited to offer a new and unique program in the Community College System of New Hampshire," says LRCC HIT Department Chair, Sann Lavallee of Belmont, who also heads LRCC's Computer Technologies Department. "What a progressive move for LRCC to prepare individuals to set up systems specializing in the most efficient healthcare information updates that can improve the overall efficiency of patient care."
The main professor of LRCC's new HIT Program will be Donna Morgan of Gilford, a LRCC graduate who earned the Associates in Applied Science with a focus in the Medical Profession in 1994. Morgan also continued for her Bachelor's Degree at Daniel Webster College in Management and Information Technology. Morgan then completed her Master's Degree in Business Education at Southern New Hampshire University.
"HIT is the top topic in healthcare," says Professor Morgan, an Information Technology expert at LRGHealthcare in Laconia for a number of years. "It is extremely difficult to find qualified Health Information Technology professionals in the workplace. In fact, worker shortages have become a top concern according to executives in the health profession."
"Individuals completing LRCC's HIT program could earn over $50,000 a year with a two-year Associate Degree according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics data compiled using actual salaries of health information professionals across America," says Lavallee. "Success of the new HIT Program will be determined by student employment and/or transfer to a four-year institution after graduation. I believe that LRCC Professor, Donna Morgan, is ideal to teach the basic HIT courses given her vast experience in the real world of health information technology."
For additional information about LRCC's new HIT Program, contact the Admissions Department at (603) 524-3207 ext. 6766. One may also call toll-free, 1-800-357-2992.

Irene's medium of choice is watercolor with a style that is self taught as a balance between realism and impressionism, where the realism is more painterly instead of being photo realistic.
