Health Informatics Certificate

Emerging technologies are fundamentally changing the way we manage and apply knowledge. In addition, healthcare organizations must meet the challenges of the HITECH Act and HIPAA, as well as regulatory influences. As a result, the need for trained healthcare informaticians has increased dramatically over the last few years. In order to appropriately select and use technology to improve healthcare and to meet the requirements of regulating bodies, health informatics professionals need training in the use of informatics concepts and methodologies.

The advantage of this certificate program is that it offers an interprofessional learning experience and is open to graduates in all fields. This is an interprofessional program administered by the Center for Health Informatics, which is sponsored by the School of Nursing.

Approved as a Stackable Program: To encourage career and academic progression, students who have completed the Health Informatics Certificate may apply the courses towards the degree requirements for the Master of Science in Health Informatics. A separate application for admission to the MS program would be required.
