Health Informatics Option

Health Informatics is the rapidly developing scientific field that utilizes computer technology in the advancement of health care. As an applied science Health Informatics sits at the junction of computer technologies, information science, clinical practice and business management. It is the study of how health data are collected, stored and communicated; how those data are processed into health information suitable for administrative and clinical decision making; and how computer and telecommunications technology can be applied to support these processes. Students learn to identify what information and data are needed by doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, consumers, patients, government planners and other health care professionals and how they are used in order to make effective health care decisions. Graduates from a degree program in health informatics work in a variety of environments. These include hospitals, medical research laboratories, health insurance companies, Internet companies, health information technology suppliers, or consulting organizations. Within each of these environments lie opportunities as database administrators, project managers, project designers, researchers, or systems analysts.
