    I'm already in healthcare IT. I had hoped to use this as a springboard to get out of help desk, but I'm leaning towards getting out of healthcare. I paid for the test though, now ready to move onto the CCENT.

    This is being retired at the end of the year. It didn't have a long life at all. Anyone know of the reasons for retireing? Just no interest possibly?

    You might want to try the CPHIMS, if you have enough HIT experience.

    does the HIT expire?
    I'm looking at most likely being hired by a healthcare company. Aeroflow Healthcare | DME Provider of Mobility, CPAP, & Respiratory Equipment Though they don't normally deal with patients directly, they do run a pharmacy on site and of course deal in DME for the home. SO, there will be some patient/sensitive information around. Would this cert be valuable for me?

    How hard overall was the exam? I purchased a voucher and a book and plan on taking it before the expiration date? Can this be knocked out in a weekend or so?

    Congratulations on the pass
    So I guess from the information that was presented, the CompTIA Heathcare IT certification will be ending this year. I was contemplating on taking it since there are a lot of IT positions in the healthcare field in the RTP area. I flipped through the official book at my campus library and saw that, besides healthcare, it contained information that was covered in A+, Network+, and Security+. I guess that it is worth noting on a resume. It also doesn't expire.

    Doyen, that's basically what I've seen. Kind of a mix of A+ with a little Net+ and Sec+ as well as a decent amount of healthcare standards and guidelines dealing with patient information and the like.
