This course serves as an introductory course in the Health and Medical Informatics curriculum. The focus is on health and medical informatics as a discipline and includes the coverage of major healthcare policies and standards that affect the health information industry, patient care systems (computerized patient records, delivery and monitoring systems), and modeling concepts and applications. Students will explore the impact of Information Technology (IT) on healthcare and analyze real applications of health informatics. Other topics include: healthcare system reform/accountable care, mobile health devices, telehealth and HIEs. This course also provides the opportunity for students to explore their own interests in sub-specialties of health informatics through a research project that will be shared and reviewed by other students in the class at the end of the semester.
