Health Care Informatics Graduate Certificate


Health Care Informatics is a dynamic emerging field that focuses on how technology is used in the delivery of health care services. Informatics has made many contributions to the health care environment in recent years: applications of technology to administrative and financial transactions, such as billing and inventory control; a virtual explosion of health-related information available to consumers via the Internet; as well as state and federal data reporting mandates.

The Graduate Certificate in Health Care Informatics is designed for full-time professionals in the fields of health care or information technology who seek career advancement, but do not wish to undertake the rigors and corresponding time and expense of a full master's program.


  • Taught predominantly online
  • Designed specifically for adult learners–high level of customer service
  • Predictable scheduling
  • Program length: The graduate certificate program is designed to be completed in as little as one year–6 courses (18 credits).
