Certificate in Informatics in Health Information Systems Architecture

Individuals graduating from this program will be the architects and developers of advanced health IT solutions. These individuals will be cross-trained in IT and health domains, thereby possessing a high level of familiarity with health domains to complement their technical skills in computer and information science.

  1. Understanding Technology and Methodologies for processing data, information and knowledge in Health Care
    • Explain health informatics and health information systems and being able to prepare health information system design and development.
    • Recommend usability and usefulness measures to evaluate health information systems.
    • Discern principles of informatics that govern communication systems, health decisions, information retrieval, telemedicine, bioinformatics and evidence-based medicine as well as ways in which information science and computer technology can enhance evidence based practice in healthcare.
  2. Information Literacy for Health Care
    • Inspect solutions for management and mining of data generated in scientific laboratories and clinical trials for data mining and knowledge discovery, which include knowledge discovery techniques and databases, extraction of data/metadata stored in data warehouses using Storage Area Networks and dealing with issues of handling this data.
    • Design approaches to access needed information effectively and efficiently.
    • Analyze the principles and methodologies underlying most standards for health care data interchange and practical issues of reading and understanding specifications, implementing, and translating between standards.
  3. Information Management
    • Analyze theoretical and practical models for the delivery of consumer health information and implement them in the design and development of consumer health information resources.
