Health Informatics Certificate

Learn how to unlock the power of data to improve health outcomes and patient care.

Electronic Health Records (EHRs) contain vast amounts of data. Yet typically, only 20 percent can be readily extracted.

In this certificate program, students learn how to apply machine learning, research methods, natural language processing, and database management to leverage the other 80 percent of "unstructured" health data. We work with our academic medical center partners to provide a hands-on, real-world healthcare database learning environment of more than two million patient encounters over 12 years (including structured and unstructured EHR data).
