PAM 5643

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the various applications of data and health information technology (HIT) across a variety of health care settings and how different players within the health care ecosystem are embracing HIT to improve care delivery.  As the health care system in this country evolves, it is becoming increasingly reliant on robust HIT systems to improve care delivery.  This course is designed to be an immersion into health care information systems: how they have been enabled by an evolution of HIT policy in the U.S., how different health care players are utilizing HIT to improve outcomes, and how a favorable funding environment has enabled innovative companies to change the way we interact with the health care system.
