Healthcare Informatics - BS in Information Technology

Return to: BS in Information Technology  

Students in the Healthcare Informatics concentration are prepared to take an active role in designing, building, and supporting the information systems required to operate today’s dynamic healthcare systems. Students gain an understanding of how information technology is used in patient care, research, administration, and public health; learn to analyze and design information systems, policies, and processes in response to industry needs; and explore social and ethical issues as they relate to the storage, retrieval, and management of patient data. Hands-on lab activities and cross-functional team collaboration give participants the skills they need to solve real challenges facing the healthcare industry today. The program culminates in a capstone experience in which students revisit their professional goals and develop plans for continued learning and career development.
