Health Care Informatics is an emerging specialization in the health care industry that joins the disciplines of information technology, communications, and health care. Learn to bridge the technology transfer gap between those professionals entrusted to provide clinical care and those who manage the complex information systems required to operate today’s health care system. Become trained in a career that marries the technical world of computer applications and the varied environment of the health care provider.
In addition to being an exciting career for the high school graduate who enjoys computer science and is interested in health care, the program is designed to be transfer friendly for a seasoned health care professional who is interested in transitioning into a new arena within this industry.
