The introduction of electronic health records and health databases within the clinical setting has transformed health care. Medical Informatics has emerged as a new field of study that bridges human-computer interactions in the health care space, as well as how the data we collect in these settings can be leveraged to improve patient safety, outcomes, and quality. Graduates of the program will be well-qualified for rewarding careers in health data analysts, system evaluators, and annotators.
