Powered by HIMSS, the TIGER VLE is a one-stop online health IT education portal for academic professionals, students, adult learners, and clinical educators. The VLE contains resources reflective of core international competencies to take you from A to Z in Health IT. This personalized learning experience is designed to expand skill sets in a self-paced format and offers three learner levels: basic, intermediate and advanced user levels.

  • Access on-demand webinar archive

Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with login information, access web link and the User Guide which teaches you the “ins and outs” of VLE navigation. If you do not receive registration confirmation, check your junk mail folder or spam filter.
