Masters Degree in Health Informatics

The Master of Science in Health Informatics degree is earned through a postgraduate program that adequately positions professionals to accept career opportunities above and beyond the entry-level. This degree program strategically uses the student’s current medical or IT experience and takes it to the next level by incorporating informatics programs that give professionals the skills to effectively monitor, allocate, retrieve, and analyze patient data. Because the Master in Health Informatics degree is the highest completion level for this profession, you can feel confident that you will be educated and prepared to seek a managerial position in the field of health informatics.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers in health informatics are likely to see an increase of 20% by the year 2018. The reason for this trend is really two-fold: the onset of electronic medical records and an aging population. Statistically, about 13% of America’s total population are residents over age 65.  There is a tremendous push in the medical community for the adoption of electronic medical records. While only about 6.3% of physicians were using an EMR system in 2009, recent studies have indicated that between 10% and 36% will be using one by the end of 2011.
