Master of Science in Health Informatics
The Master of Science in Health Informatics emphasizes the social aspects (individual, group and organizational) of health informatics. Course work emphasizes the analysis, implementation and ongoing management of the critical factors that impact the successful selection and use of health care information technologies. The MS in HI program is a designated “Approved Program” by CAHIIM.
The online Master of Science in Health Informatics program now offers a course-only degree option, as well as a more traditional research degree option. This change reflects the industry need for health informatics research professionals. In addition, with supplemental coursework, graduates pursuing the research option are eligible to take the national Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) credential exam offered by the American Health Information Management Association.
