NMT 220 Medical Informatics, 1 credit

Medical informatics is essential for the future implementation of clinical system data entry and development. The engaged process of enhancing the student's knowledge, experience, and training in the creation and utilization of patient data, administration, and medical quality assurance will be the focus of this specialty. Patients, caregivers, and the health care community at large will benefit from the accessibility of ongoing medical information and data into a computerized system. Ongoing health care information and technology for health care delivery systems and subsequent interfacing, in conjunction with mandatory patient centered documentation for federal, state, regulatory, and credentialing agencies, must be studied and maintained.
