UC Launches New Distance Learning Program in Health Informatics
The College of Allied Health Sciences will offer a new master's degree program for distance-learning students in the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Master’s in Health Informatics program, designed to train students in the management and analysis of health care or biomedical data, will be a collaborative distance learning degree between Allied Health Sciences and UC’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business.
The program, created primarily for working health care and information services professionals, will prepare students for the growing field of health informatics, says interim department chair Jan Kelly.
Graduates can work in health data analytics in a variety of fields, from analyzing public and private health care data and outcomes to creating and implementing information security processes to ensure data integrity and safety. They can also use health informatics in areas like project management, strategic planning and health information exchange.
