Department of Health Informatics and Information Management

Health informatics and information management (HIIM) professionals provide the leadership necessary to  provide quality information that supports clinical and nonclinical decision making in real time to the health-care industry. Transforming data into health intelligence while governing and respecting the privacy rights of patients and providers is a challenge all health-care delivery systems face. The profession aims to improve patients' experiences with respect to quality and satisfaction, to improve the health of populations, and to improve the per capita costs of health care. Professionals trained in HIIM possess the necessary leadership—as well as the technological, administrative, legislative, analytical, and decision-making skill sets—to ensure a competent workforce in the health-care industry.
