STEM Fuse, LLC, provider of K-14 digital STEM curriculum is donating $15 million worth of HIT (health information technology) curricula to U.S. high schools.

Health information technology encompasses computer-related work in a healthcare setting. Professionals in this line of work contribute to the organization and maintenance of medical data, such as electronic medical record (EMR) information. They typically perform duties in an office setting and may be employed within hospitals, nursing care facilities, outpatient care centers, physicians’ offices, home healthcare services, government agencies and other organizations that use electronic medical records. 

Despite the growth in the HIT field, along with the relative ease of access for employees to get into this field (in many cases a two year associates degree is enough for hire) the majority of U.S. high schools do not offer HIT.
