Master of Science in the Field of Management of Health Informatics and Analytics
Program Director P. MacTaggart
The goal of the master of science in management of health informatics and analytics (MHIA) degree program is to develop leaders who possess the knowledge and skills to achieve optimal delivery of health care through the use of information to make sound decisions.
An informatics-related degree from the Department of Health Policy and Management incorporates business and medical informatics training, knowledge of health care systems, law and policy, critical values in decision making, and much more. The MHIA is designed for adult students who possess either clinical or administrative experience in health care delivery. Classes are taught in a hybrid model, combining ten-week distance learning modules and executive format, face-to-face immersion classes.
The MHIA curriculum focuses on developing the skills and values needed for persons who seek to create highly effective health care organizations and utilize technology to make better health care decisions. Culminating activities for MHIA students include a capstone course that gives students the opportunity to develop a practical solution for a major health care problem that can be solved using Informatics.
