Health Information Systems Concentration

Research has shown that certain kinds of information technology and the systems in which they are applied - such as computerized physician order entry (CPOE), computerized decision support systems and barcoding for medication administration - can improve efficiency, reduce costs and improve health outcomes.

The growing role of information technology within health care delivery organizations has created the current need to increase the pool of health care managers who can help organizations maximize the ongoing effectiveness of their investment in information technology.

The concentration is designed to meet that need and to develop students’ expertise in the planning, development and implementation of health information systems (H.I.S.). The concentration will also focus on how H.I.S. can improve the delivery of health care with the latest methods and technologies for the collection, organization, use and evaluation of health care information. It is the goal of this methodology to positively impact the safety, patient-centeredness, timeliness, effectiveness and efficiency of care.

Concentration Description

The concentration will develop students’ expertise in the planning, development and implementation of health information systems (H.I.S.). Students will understand legal, regulatory and compliance issues related to these systems and develop health care information management systems leadership skills.
