Focus on Emerging Health Technologies and Concepts

The Master’s of Science in Health Informatics & Data Science (HIDS) is a STEM program that focuses on technologies and concepts on how to leverage data science, big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning applications to improve healthcare, especially in the fields of precision medicine, population health management, and value-based care.

HIDS courses align with American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) core competencies for professionals in Health Informatics. They focus on human factors engineering and usability, imaging informatics, EHR data mining, and digital health applications. The mandatory Capstone Project is an integrative experience in which students intern with an organization and use skills acquired through the program to analyze a real-world problem with their mentor.
