Implement systems that improve patient care.
Patient care looks different today thanks to advancements in technology. The tools and platforms used to store, retrieve and evaluate electronic medical records have become more advanced, which means diagnoses and treatment are more accurate.
UIC’s online Master of Science in Health Informatics curriculum builds on your technical knowledge and incorporates clinical trends, government regulations and healthcare-specific management best practices. We’ll equip you with the analytical and managerial expertise to promote better outcomes and eliminate the chance for errors — one data point at a time.
