Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI)
The Online Master of Science in Health Informatics at The University of Findlay is a 33 semester hour graduate program centered on the science behind electronic health records. Health Informatics defines how health information is technically captured, transmitted and utilized. Health informatics is regarded as a “trans-disciplinary” field because it focuses on information systems, informatics principles and information technology as it is applied to the continuum of health care delivery.
The mission of the health informatics program is to prepare individuals to influence the future of healthcare through the use of technology.
Students who earn their MSHI degree from The University of Findlay will learn to collect, analyze, report and present data and information that facilitate stakeholder decision making within the health care industry. They will also be trained to understand the significance of the resulting information and to utilize technology as a tool to support the clinical or administrative decision making process.
