There is a growing demand and interest in the role information systems play in the delivery of effective healthcare.  As society continues to demand increased accountability, efficiency and transparency from healthcare providers, the management of healthcare information has become very important.  Moreover, the explosion of data production in hospitals, doctors offices, and insurance corporations has created an environment in which the effective analysis, management and delivery of healthcare information is more important than ever. 

 

The Master of Science in Health Information Management will prepare students to manage electronic records and resulting data.  For example, part of the Affordable Care Act, the Medicare Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program financially rewards health agencies that have achieved meaningful use of EHRs.  The MSHIM will prepare students to take leadership positions in managing this exploding field.
