Professionals in health informatics have skills in analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of information systems that support a full range of clinical and patient care functions. Working as a translation specialist, the graduate will be prepared for entry and mid-level positions with informatics departments, medical practice departments, nursing departments, public health organizations, and as consultants and/or staff in organizations that specialize in computer operations and knowledge management. Graduates also have the skills to enter the growing field of health information exchange, which includes regional health information organizations and the emerging personal health records. In addition to a foundation in information technology, special skills will be acquired in organizational change, project management and impact evaluation. This is an interprofessional degree offered through the Office of Graduate Studies, with oversight by the University of Kansas Center for Health Informatics through its advisory council. The program is designed for health professionals or information technology specialists who want a specialty focus in health informatics. The advisory council of this program reflects this commitment to interprofessional collaboration.
