Population Health Informatics Information Session
October 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Population Health Informatics addresses the growing opportunity to use technology to implement evidence-based solutions for the improvement of population health outcomes. While most health informatics programs take a hospital-centric approach, this innovative first-of-its-kind program focuses on how to operationalize informatics solutions to address important public health challenges impacting individuals, families, communities, and the environment in which they live. Students will acquire skills on how technology can be used at the intersection of clinical care and health sciences to strengthen the efforts for preventive care at the population level. The program offers practical coverage of critical topics such as big data, cloud computing, mobile health, surveillance, and visualization all from the perspective of the end user. Further, the program will offer students the skills and expertise to design, develop, implement and evaluate technology-enabled interventions and solutions to address the population health challenges of the 21st century. This program is fully online.
