UNE Online’s Health Infor­mat­ics cer­tifi­cate ben­e­fits stu­dent by round­ing out their pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence and for­mal train­ing as they become more pro­fes­sion­al­ly estab­lished. This field is grow­ing rapid­ly, and a Health Infor­mat­ics cer­tifi­cate pro­vide the skills need­ed to hit the ground run­ning in a career with­in a health­care set­ting.

Program course structure

The Grad­u­ate Cer­tifi­cate in Health Infor­mat­ics pro­gram requires you to com­plete 18 cred­it hours  of required cours­es.  All cours­es are post-bachelor’s lev­el and taught in eight-week terms, allow­ing you to take two cours­es each semes­ter. The Health Infor­mat­ics cer­tifi­cate is three semes­ters in length, which is the time equiv­a­lent of one full year. This assumes that you choose to take a reg­u­lar course load con­sist­ing of one course each term, two cours­es per semes­ter. You may com­plete the pro­gram more quick­ly tak­ing more than one course each eight-week term. Click to view our course list.

  3. Apply core con­cepts of data­base design to facil­i­tate man­ag­ing the large amounts of data pro­duced and cap­tured in the health­care set­ting.
  4. Under­stand foun­da­tion­al con­cepts and the­o­ries of lead­er­ship and man­age­ment, espe­cial­ly with respect to data-dri­ven busi­ness intel­li­gence.

  7. Eval­u­ate the ways new and devel­op­ing health­care tech­nol­o­gy trends influ­ence world-wide health out­comes, and pro­pose poten­tial tech­nol­o­gy-based solu­tions for increas­ing world-wide health out­comes.
  8. Under­stand and apply project man­age­ment tools, con­cepts, and best prac­tices to over­see the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of com­plex projects.
