UC Online’s Master’s of Health Informatics (MHI) program prepares students to take on exciting careers in a fast-growing field. In the constantly evolving medical world, professionals with training in both information technology and healthcare are in high demand. The rapid pace of change in the informatics field demands knowledgeable leaders who have the credentials to surmount challenges throughout today’s healthcare industry and shape the future of public and population health for years to come.
Books, supplies and technical fees are estimated at an additional $150-$400 per term. Program fees: $75 per semester for full-time students or $7/credit hour for part-time students. Tuition and fees are subject to change(less than 3%).
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.
The real-world focused faculty at UC are relevant, inspiring, attentive, supportive and connected!
“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.”
