HIT in the CLE

Convened by BioEnterprise and supported by The Cleveland Foundation, HIT in the CLE is a health IT talent initiative aimed at growing and diversifying the Northeast Ohio health IT talent pipeline to support a growing and robust biomedical and health IT industry.

Its mission is to grow the local pipeline and availability of highly skilled talent for two critical positions most in demand currently for the Health IT cluster: software developer and data scientist.

The initiative includes participation from CoverMyMeds, Hyland Software, IBM Watson Health, OnShift, Pandata, PartsSource, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Cleveland Municipal School District, Cuyahoga Community College, John Carroll University, Kent State University, North Olmsted High School, North Royalton School District, Rocky River High School and WeCanCodeIT.

Since 2015, the collaboration has facilitated:
-access to relevant computer science curricula for roughly 9,500 Cuyahoga County high school students
-enabled over 100 post-secondary student engagements with or visits to regional health IT companies
-hosted approximately 100 high school students in an inaugural data science competition.
