Health Informatics Graduate Program
Improving the delivery of health care
We have access to more health information than ever. But do we know how to use it? Located at the hub of health, science, and technology, health informatics examines the “why” behind health data.
Learn to improve the process of providing health care when you enroll in one of the health informatics degree programs at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI.
Fine-tuning the flow of information
By making health care safer and more efficient, our graduates make a difference in their communities and around the world. They refine electronic health record systems, analyze data and how it’s collected, and protect patient information as they answer questions like:
- What’s the most effective way to offer reliable medical advice 24/7?
- What types of health care communication do patients prefer?
- How can we best use Big Data in health care to make wise and sensible business, clinical, and patient-care decisions?
“Informatics students don’t just manage the data. They look at the process.”
Jayanth Kumar Medam, Health Informatics graduate student
For clinical leaders who seek to implement information systems to improve the quality of health care and patient satisfaction.
This program prepares you to implement information systems that meet public health program needs.
Health Information Management and Exchange
Learn how to more easily collect, retrieve and analyze electronic health information.
Health Information Security
Professional education in health IT allows you to effectively safeguard protected medical information.
“We bring together different specialties, different angles, to improve the delivery of health care.”
Josette Jones, Health Informatics program director
A center for technological innovation
At the School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI, our faculty are engaged in cutting-edge research.
They’re exploring the next generation of health IT systems, applications of health analytics, and development of technologies to support patients wherever they may need access to health informatics.
