The amount and speed of data are increasing across every industry—especially health care. A Master of Science in Clinical and Health Informatics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison ensures that you have a strong foundation in clinical informatics methods so you can create innovative solutions or improve the ones already in place.
The Clinical and Health Informatics program integrates electronic health record analysis, database design and clinical operational management, health modeling, and health care data security into one degree. It also supplements your existing health care expertise and builds analytical and management skills.
Work with instructors and peers across an array of disciplines to understand how to make key decisions about health, security, and biomedical and health information problems. You complete classes in data analytics, engineering design, information systems, management, and leadership skills.
Every course is different because every class is different. Your classmates come from varied health care backgrounds and may work down the hall, at your competitor’s business, or across the globe. You each bring real-world challenges from your workplace into your coursework to examine and practice together.
The online atmosphere is collaborative and interactive, so while you learn to couple your health care knowledge with analytics, you also learn how to work collaboratively and remotely. Additionally, our instructors understand the challenges you face when working online while maintaining your current responsibilities at your job and in your life. We support you throughout your education, so you stay engaged and on track to complete your degree—no matter what your timeline.
The program was designed directly with industry demands in mind. We created our courses in response to the surge in demand for expertise in electronic health record analysis, database design and clinical operational management, health modeling, and health care data security. Graduates will be ready to meet the growing workforce demand for informaticists.
