Bachelors Degree in Health Informatics

Professionals who choose the Bachelor of Science in Health Informatics degree are generally considered suitable for entry-level employment as health information administrators (HIAs). The role of the administrator is to review, record, and analyze health care data and ensure that it can also be properly distributed to health care professionals for optimal patient care.


The adoption of electronic health records (EHR) is having an important impact on the work performed by HIAs. In early January of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control released a report that found that just 6.3% of independent physicians nationwide were using fully functional electronic health record systems. However, with federal requirements pushing for greater EHR adoption, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services now expect that as many as 36% of all physicians nationwide will be using some type of electronic record system during 2011.   

Students considering the Bachelor of Science in Health Informatics will be at the forefront of this digital revolution in the maintenance and distribution of medical information.
