Health Informatics Certificate

College of Professional Studies and Social Sciences

For information contact Allen Minor, PhD

The program in Health Informatics was developed to respond to the need among mid-career health professionals to develop advanced skills in the areas of health information technology to respond to these demands from the profession. With the acceleration of federal and state government reporting requirements on patient assessments and outcomes, the electronic medical record (EMR) and Medicare Meaningful Use requirements are only a few of the applications of Informatics knowledge. The 18 credit certificate program was developed as an option to the completion of the Master's program, and is designed specifically for those who presently work in the informatics area of health care.
