How Health Informatics Helps Patients

Health Informatics experts manage the gap between clinical health care and information technology contributing to practices that improve patient care, patient safety, population health, and data quality. As technology continues to improve, health care systems are leveraging it in new ways. As patients have more autonomy and control of their own electronic health records, it’s important that there are people to coordinate across health care professionals. This leadership and coordination happens through trained health informatics professionals. The innovation they bring to the field vastly improves communication and helps to lessen the potential for medical errors due to inaccurate data.

“As a full- time, working, single parent, the MHI program allowed me to balance all of my responsibilities and provide me with the flexibility I needed to succeed. I was really excited that the curriculum aligned so well with my job role as a Clinical Application Analyst. Coming to work every day and being able to apply what I learned in my classes was very rewarding. If there are students interested in understanding the IT role and how it aligns with Healthcare, I believe this program will satisfy their needs. I was extremely pleased, and I look forward to all of the doors this accomplishment will open for me.”
