Informatics leverages the power of technology into a tool that makes discovery possible. Health informatics examines the “why” behind health data. It allows us to monitor our own health information, and to use biomedical data to spot trends and limit outbreaks of disease.
You can apply the science of information management to the field of health care by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Informatics and a master’s degree in Health Informatics through the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI.
