UNE Online’s Health Infor­mat­ics master’s degree pro­gram is a 36-cred­it hour master’s pro­gram designed to expand your tech­ni­cal skill set and knowl­edge-base to make you a leader in the health indus­try. This pro­gram can be com­plet­ed entire­ly online, with no cam­pus vis­its required, and offers the flex­i­bil­i­ty busy work­ing pro­fes­sion­als need in order to com­plete a grad­u­ate degree.

Program Structure and Course Plan

The Health Infor­mat­ics master’s degree can be com­plet­ed in six semes­ters, or two full years, assum­ing a stu­dent takes two cours­es per semes­ter. Stu­dents enrolled in this pro­gram must com­plete 10 required cours­es, includ­ing a field practicum expe­ri­ence as well as any two elec­tive cours­es. Elec­tive cours­es are designed to help stu­dents meet their edu­ca­tion­al and pro­fes­sion­al goals and stu­dents may choose to cus­tomize their degree plan or pur­sue one of our option­al focus areas.

    In this focus area stu­dents are pre­pared for careers in lead­er­ship posi­tions in health­care. Stu­dents will obtain the skills need­ed to be suc­cess­ful lead­ers includ­ing strate­gic think­ing, devel­op­ment of ini­tia­tives, strate­gic plan­ning, finan­cial man­age­ment, lead­er­ship skills and tac­tics, and health­care sup­ply chain.

    This focus area pre­pares stu­dents for careers in data sci­ence and pre­dic­tive ana­lyt­ics. Stu­dents will con­duct a rig­or­ous inves­ti­ga­tion of health data ana­lyt­ics which will include rel­e­vant skills such as: data min­ing and ware­hous­ing, sta­tis­ti­cal com­put­ing and visu­al­iza­tion, pre­dic­tive mod­el­ing, and machine learn­ing.

    In this focus area stu­dents are pre­pared for careers in train­ing and edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram­ming for health­care tech­nol­o­gy inte­gra­tion. Stu­dents explore adult learn­ing the­o­ry as it per­tains to train­ing in IT set­tings and mas­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­niques to inform their instruc­tion­al pro­gram­ming.

    Stu­dents can choose two elec­tive cours­es to com­plete their degree that meet their edu­ca­tion­al and pro­fes­sion­al goals instead of pur­su­ing a focus area.

Health Informatics Master’s Capstone & Practicum

Stu­dents enrolled in the Mas­ter of Sci­ence in Health Infor­mat­ics are required to com­plete two prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion cours­es in which they will take con­cepts in health infor­mat­ics and apply them to a real world expe­ri­ence. Stu­dents under­take a work expe­ri­ence in a health infor­mat­ics set­ting, called a practicum. The UNE practicum coor­di­na­tor will super­vise this expe­ri­ence. Many stu­dents choose to com­plete their cap­stone expe­ri­ence at their own work­place. In addi­tion to inte­grat­ing what stu­dents have learned, the practicum is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to net­work exten­sive­ly with the infor­mat­ics work­force pri­or to grad­u­a­tion.
