The Master of Science in Information Systems (I.S.) with a concentration in
Health Informatics is designed to meet the needs of
students who want to build a strong background in information systems and the
application of information and communications technology in business.
In today’s highly competitive
global environment, the effective deployment of information technology has
become the key to business success. New applications of information technology
strike at the heart of what management does and how organizations are structured
and compete. In many respects these applications are redefining the nature of
work and its organization.
There is a continuing
shortage of specialists and managers with the combination of business and
technology skills needed to bring about this reshaping of international
industries. The purpose of the I.S. major in the Master of Science program is to
produce graduates who are able to combine their general business knowledge with
the latest information systems tools and techniques to enable organizations to
compete strongly in the global marketplace.
The goal of
the concentration in Health Informatics is to provide students with
specialized skills to improve healthcare services enabled by information
technology. Such improvements focus on the information-intensive nature of
healthcare institutions and processes to increase the quality and reduce the
cost of healthcare services.
