Health Information Technology involves the exchange of health information in an electronic environment. Widespread use of information technology within the health care industry will improve the quality of health care, prevent medical errors, reduce health care costs, increase administrative efficiencies, decrease paperwork, and expand access to affordable health care.
Students in the Healthcare Programming and Systems Analysis major gain the knowledge and skills required to fulfill an essential information technology role in healthcare, either as a developer who designs, implements, and maintains health-based software applications, or as an analyst supporting current healthcare-related applications.
Graduates understand healthcare fundamentals and have IT professional skills in systems analysis, software development, database design, and core technical skills including .NET, Java, HL7, SQL, and SQL Server.
